About the project

Buckinghamshire County Council (BCC), Wycombe District Council (WDC) & The Buckinghamshire Thames Valley Local Enterprise Partnership (BTVLEP) are looking to enhance the Cressex Road / Cressex Link Road / Coronation Road crossroads to improve traffic flows in the area.

There will also be a proposed cycle way along Cressex Road which will enhance facilities for cyclists

The above two schemes all form part of a wider strategy called the Southern Quadrant Transport Strategy (SQTS) 

Timescales

Public consultation finished on Friday 06th April. Following feedback from residents and businesses we are finalising a design, with enabling works expected to commence in May and construction to commence in the Summer.

Cressex Road / Cressex Link Road Junction

Cressex – FAQ

Why is the junction being designed to benefit a North/South flow?

It is very important to improve the configuration of the junction in order to improve peak time journey times to and from Cressex Business Park. The 216 businesses across the Business Park together employ 4869 people (6% of employees in the district), and contribute a Gross Value Added figure of £331m a year (6% of GVA in the district).

What are the proposed changes to the junction?

  • The traffic signals will be reconfigured to allow a more dominant North áâ South flow.
  • Toucan crossings will be introduced to Cressex Road, Cressex Link Road and Coronation Road to create safe places for pedestrians and cyclists to cross at the junction.
  • Motorists will be able to turn left from Cressex Road onto Coronation Road, and from Cressex Road onto Cressex Link Road. All right turns will remain prohibited.
  • A new Traffic Regulation Order will be introduced prohibiting vehicles that are larger than 7.5t from using Cressex Road.

Will the changes improve journey times to and from the Business Park?

Yes. The proposed changes to the junction will offer a better flow through the junction, especially during peak periods. This improvement is a small element of a larger picture around Cressex to improve traffic flows. Potential future schemes within the area are being investigated, but are not being consulted upon as part of the current process.

Why are left-hand turns from Cressex Road being introduced?

Introducing left turns will allow drivers travelling along Cressex Road onto Cressex Link Road or Coronation Road, providing more direct routes to the Business Park and the M40.

Why will right-hand turns remain prohibited?

In order to divert traffic away from residential areas, the project seeks to discourage motorists from using Cressex Road. This will ease congestion at the Cressex Link Road roundabout on the A4010.
