A308 Corridor Study

This early engagement phase has now ended. Thank you for your feedback.


Overview

The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead (RBWM) has submitted its Borough Local Plan (BLP) to the Planning Inspectorate for examination. The BLP makes provision for at least 14,420 new homes and 11,291 new jobs within the plan period. Much of this development will be focused on Maidenhead, including regeneration of the town centre and development of sites to the south-west of the town centre.

Neighbouring Wycombe District has recently adopted their local plan, with High Wycombe identified as a major focus for housing and jobs, while Spelthorne Borough Council is consulting on their local plan, incorporating enhancement of the retail offer in Staines-upon-Thames. Our local communities are growing, and this development will inevitably generate additional trips on local and strategic transport networks, with the A308 corridor likely to come under increasing pressure.

The Council recently declared a climate emergency and pledged to meet the national commitment of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. Given that transport is now the single biggest source of greenhouse gases within the Royal Borough, it is vital that schemes and initiatives that promote sustainable travel are identified and delivered.

The Council has secured funding for a study to look at the A308 corridor between Bisham Roundabout and the M25. The study will focus on how improvements can support sustainable economic growth and ensure that the road and transport networks are fit for purpose as the area’s population expands. We want your help with this study, as someone who lives, works or travels in the area regularly.

Study Area

The A308 runs from Bisham in the west to Kingston Vale in the east. This study will focus on the section of the A308 between the Bisham roundabout junction in the west and the Runnymede roundabout at Staines-upon-Thames in the east. See the image below (click to enlarge)

We want to know about your experience when using this section of the A308 and connecting transport links.

Have your say

The Council and Project Centre will be engaging with local stakeholders throughout 11 September - 09 October 2020, gathering feedback on their current experience travelling within the A308 study area to help inform the plans that will be designed and taken forward to help improve the network for future travel demand.

Think about your journeys on or around the A308? We want to hear about your issues with:

  • Bus services – links with other services, comfort, bus stop issues, frequency etc
  • Rail services – station locations and facilities, routes, frequency, interchanges and links with other services etc
  • Walking and cycling links – lack of connectivity, crossing points, safety, condition of pavements/cycleways etc
  • Road / personal safety
  • Journey times/congestion
  • Road user behaviour – speed, numbers, safety
  • Problem junctions
  • Access to services
  • Environmental issues

Please tell us by opening our INTERACTIVE MAP and adding your comments. Your comments will help inform the future improvements for the A308 corridor so please tell us what the problems are by adding as many comments as you want to the interactive map.

If you think any areas and services are great as they currently are, please also tell us about these, as we want to make sure we keep and add to the good things as well as improving the less good things!

We will collate and summarise the issues identified during this engagement and cross-check them against other available data (e.g. traffic surveys, collision data etc). Your feedback will then be used to inform a long-list of proposals over the autumn/winter, which will then be narrowed down to a short-list of preferred options.

The preferred options will be agreed and concept designs will start being prepared in October 2020. A strategic outline business case for the preferred options will be developed over the summer in support of a funding bid to the Berkshire Local Transport Body.
