A4071 Bilton Road, Rugby New Signalised Junction for Housing Development

Rugby Borough Council granted George Wimpey Homes Limited planning permission for a housing development off Bilton Road, Rugby. A condition of the permission granted required a new signalised traffic junction to allow access to the residential development. The new junction is located on Bilton Road at its existing junction with Buchannan Road. The scheme was wholly funded by George Wimpey Homes.

The works consisted of realigning and widening Bilton Road and constructing a new access road for the housing development. A new length of box culvert was also built to divert the watercourse of Sow Brook under the realigned section of Bilton Road. In addition, the works included an up-grading of the existing traffic signals on Bilton Road at the junction with Lytham Road and May Lane.

It was agreed following public consultation, that no work would be carried out on the residential service road. However, if traffic problems arise, then calming measures on the service road may need to be considered to reduce either traffic flows or the speed of vehicles using it.

The contract was undertaken by Carillion Regional Civil Engineering who have offices at Shawell off the A5 Watling Street near Lutterworth. The road and culvert works commenced on the 21st May 2007, and were completed in October 2008.
