OVERNIGHT road closures on the A329 will be put into place as the final stage of the Martins Heron improvement scheme is set to begin on London Road between Martins Heron and Ascot.

The Martins Heron improvement scheme is entering the final stage of the carriageway resurfacing work, which will result in overnight road closures starting on Monday, January 14.

The work is expected to take around two weeks and all traffic will be diverted to alternative routes between 8.30pm and 6am.

Councillor Chris Turrell, executive member for Planning and Transport, said: “The overnight resurfacing work brings us one step closer to the end of the scheme.

“This work is weather dependent, so the completion date may vary slightly but every effort will be made to complete the work within two weeks.”

The scheme started in 2017, where the first phase of the improvements to the A329 London Road were made. The finished work allows vehicles to enter and exit the Licensed Victuallers’ School more efficiently.

The second part of the work made changes to the Fernbank Road junction, providing longer and wider lanes heading towards Bracknell.

The traffic lights on the road have been refurbished and now use the latest technology, which enables the signals to adjust to traffic conditions.

Cllr Turrell added: “Thank you to motorists, residents and businesses for their continued patience during the final and most challenging phase of the London Road improvement scheme.”

The last stage will be the largest part of the roadworks to take place on the London Road.

Cllr Turrell said: “These improvements will provide additional capacity to cope with increased traffic flows and provide more reliable journey times along this busy route.”

The scheme is being funded by the council and the government who gave a total of £3.8million towards the improvements.
