Runnymede Roundabout is a known congestion pinch point in the north eastern part of the Enterprise M3 area.
The scheme has a strategic location, with immediate connections to M25 (Junction 13), Heathrow Airport, Staines-upon-Thames, Egham and Windsor. Roads connected to the roundabout experience traffic bottlenecks at peak times.
Enhancements to its layout and addition of signalling will significantly improve traffic management and dramatically reduce waiting times at peak periods. Additionally, it will significantly improve accessibility for pedestrians and cyclists to the neighbouring areas and River Thames.
The proposed improvement measures are expected to contribute to retention of existing businesses, whilst attracting new development, thereby contributing to local economic growth and job creation.
The tackling of congestion and delays is expected to reduce journey time and cost of travel, improve overall journey reliability, and reduce accident risk.
