MK Highways secures £3.9 million funds for Highways Improvements

01 September 2017

MK Highways submitted a 'Challenge' funding bid to the Department for Transport in March for capital funds to carry out highways improvements to the A509/A422 to upgrade assets. We were notified that our bid was successful today 1st August 2017

The Tranche 2 funding will be paid to the authority in 2 no. payments, the first in September 2017 and the second in March 2018, this will allow the authority to carry out the improvement works over the next 12 months and improve the highway over this period which will ensure that this key route through Milton Keynes is upgraded to a state that will support the increasing demands following the further growth of Milton Keynes.

This will also support the East - West corridor improvements linking key transport nodes such as the A428, M1 motorway and the route to the A421.

The works will include ;

  • Extensive Resurfacing to improve key sections
  • Surface treatment to extend the life of sections
  • Enhanced white lining along key sections to support safety improvements
  • Upgrade Vehicle Safety Barriers to improve safety
  • Renew key route signage along the length to improve wayfinding
  • Upgrade drainage systems to ensure relliabilty of the route during inclement weather

 

In addition the above improvements will dramatically reduce reactive visits, reduce future disruption through effective co-ordination of the all works, improve journey times and create a generally safer road environment which will have the added benefit of reducing maintenance revenue and insurance claims costs to the authority.
