About the project

On 28 November 2016 the Government announced that capital funding of £175m over four financial years would be made available to local authorities, This is to improve the safety of 50 of the highest risk A roads sections in England.

The 50 routes were based on analysis by the Road Safety Foundation.  

In January 2017, BCC was informed that a 9.2km section of the A40, between Stokenchurch (junction M40) and West Wycombe (junction with A4010) had been identified as one of the routes with 10 Killed or Seriously Injured (KSI) collisions in the 3 year period 2012-14. This was a rise in the previous 3 year period (2009 to 2011) and as a result BCC was invited to bid for funding.
