Milton Keynes Council revealed its plans to resurface the roundabout in Kingston last month.

The project is designed to improve defects in the roads which have worsened during prolonged spells of cold, wet weather conditions.

The roundabout in question is situated where the H8 Standing Way intersects with the V11 Tongwell Street.

A spokesperson from MK Council revealed the current planned timetable for the works yesterday (April 15).

The V11 between the H8 and H9 will be closed starting today (April 16) until April 25 between 9:30am and 4:30pm. The Eastbound H8 Standing Way section will remain open.

Diversions are available on the H7 and H9.

Current work being done is focused on ducts and cabling, whilst concrete works is also being completed.

The full resurfacing of the roundabout will follow. Work is scheduled to begin on April 26 and run until May 1. The roundabout will be shut at non-peak hours from 9:30am and 4:30pm, whilst this work is being done.

The Council claims it has been able to half the construction time from six weeks to three thanks to Ringways MK. The group which oversees highway maintenance in Milton Keynes is providing extra crews and completing weekend shifts to accelerate the rpocess.
