Contractors are moving in ahead of work beginning on a new road at Stocklake on Monday January 18.

Contractors North Midland Construction are moving on to the site this week to prepare, ahead of the building of the new road from the Park Street roundabout which will link with a junction at Douglas Road.

The junction is due to be constructed by Barratt Homes, which is building the Kingsbrook estate, which will have more than 2,000 homes.

The new road is part of the £5.3 million Stocklake Link Road (urban) Highway Improvement Scheme, which is being jointly funded by Bucks County Council, Buckinghamshire Thames Valley Local Enterprise Partnership and the Local Transport Board.

Mark Shaw, county council cabinet member for transport said: “The Stocklake Urban scheme is an important part of a transport plan that will ease congestion in the east of Aylesbury, and I’m encouraged that we’re able to make a prompt start in the New Year.”

When the new road is completed this summer the contractors will concentrate on converting the old Stocklake into the service road providing easier access to homes and parking for residents.

The estate will also be served by a new Aylesbury Eastern Link Road from the A418 at Bierton, and an extension to the Stocklake road.

It is proposed that eventually the Aylesbury Eastern Link Road will run from the A41 Tring Road roundabout to the A418 Bierton Road.
