A roundabout that was removed in Windsor last June to make way for Olympic traffic is making a comeback.
A six-week consultation resulted in 2,032 responses – 1,507 of them in favour of the roundabout at the junction of the A308 Maidenhead Road with Mill Lane and Parsonage Lane being brought back.
Disruption to motorists, residents and businesses will be kept to a minimum as the work will take place during the off-peak hours of 9.30am to 4pm.
It starts on Friday, March 22, and will last up to three weeks.
Cllr Geoff Hill, Royal Borough cabinet member for highways and transport, said: “I’m delighted that residents were given the chance to tell their council what they wanted. As the majority consensus is that the roundabout should return, I’m pleased that work to bring this about will start soon and disruption will be kept to an absolute minimum.”
While the works are taking place traffic will be controlled by two-way manually operated temporary traffic lights, with vehicles exiting from Parsonage Lane and Mill Lane managed by stop/go boards.
