Why we need this scheme

The A5 in this area suffers from severe congestion. We need to relieve this congestion and improve traffic flow.

The scheme in detail

We are widening the current section of single carriageway between Dodwells roundabout and the Longshoot junction into a dual carriageway. We are also building a shared foot/cycleway to the south side of the carriageway. We plan to start work in 2020 subject to Land Purchase, however we’ll start design work this year to determine an appropriate option for the scheme. Some issues that may affect progress of the scheme are:
  • Compulsory land purchase
  • Flood plain consent
  • Third part landowner agreement

Aims

The aims of the scheme are to:
  • relieve congestion and improve traffic flow
  • improve safety for all road users
