New plans to make traffic flow to and from Swindon via the Great Western Way smoother will be shown off at
Thursday 6 December, 3pm to 8pm, Gorse Hill Community Centre, Chapel Street.
Swindon Council’s £10.7 million scheme focusses on remodelling four roundabouts at Bruce Street Bridges, right; Transfer Bridges, below; North Star and Cockleberry.
The project to ease traffic pressure caused by the town’s expansion to the west and north, and increase in the number of vehicles coming from outside the town, is funded largely by Section 106 developer’s planning contributions largely provided by house builders in North Swindon.
Several years of disruption at Bruce Street bridges is promised as Thames Water has announced it plans major sewer improvements in the area to improve the flow of foul water to their nearby Barnfield Road treatment works.
Improvement in traffic flow along Great Western Way is also required to cope with vastly increased volume of visitors to the town predicted for the proposed £65 million redevelopment of the Oasis Leisure Centre where an indoor snow facility and 7,500 capacity multi-purpose concert, exhibition and sports arena.
