Road Works – High Street / Keate’s Lane, Eton

RE: JUNCTION IMPROVEMENT & TRAFFIC SIGNAL UPGRADE PROJECT – HIGH STREET / KEATE’S LANE, ETON (for location)

Volker Highways on behalf of the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, will be carrying out highway engineering works at the junction of High Street and Keate’s Lane in Eton.

The work is in necessary to update and upgrade the existing traffic signal equipment, much of which has reached the end of its serviceable life. In addition, improved facilities for pedestrians will be provided including new footway and carriageway surfacing together with the inclusion of widened, controlled pedestrian crossing facilities. Improvements for cyclists will also be incorporated with the inclusion of advance stop lines.

In order to complete the project safely and as efficiently as possible the junction will be managed under temporary traffic control and be carried out in 3 phases, the details of these phases are as follows (with links to plans):

Phase 1:

  • Commencing on 14/01/19 for 2 weeks under 3-way temporary traffic signals (lights manually controlled at peak time).
  • Work limited to the High Street.
  • Work will include civil engineering work in preparation for Phase 2 installation of new lighting and traffic signal systems (lights manually controlled at peak time).
  • High Street / Keate’s Lane junction will remain open and managed under 3-way temporary traffic signals during this phase.

Phase 2:

  • Commencing on 28/01/19 for 2 weeks under 3-way temporary traffic signals
  • Work limited to the High Street.
  • Work will include installation of traffic signal and lighting equipment.
  • High Street / Keate’s Lane junction will remain open and managed under 3-way temporary traffic signals during this phase.

Phase 3:

  • Commencing on 11/02/19 for 2 weeks under road closure.
  • Work limited to Keate’s Lane.
  • Work will include civil engineering work, installation of new lighting &
    traffic signals, road and footway resurfacing.
  • The new traffic signals will be operational upon completion of this phase.

For Health and Safety reasons and to ensure the work is completed as
efficiently as possible, Keate’s Lane between its junctions with High Street and
South Meadow Lane will be closed during the working period. This is to facilitate
the works and access to and from properties may be restricted at times. We will
maintain access for emergency vehicles and for residents and businesses
located within the closure as far as possible, but there may be periods where
you could encounter delays.

Please be patient with the contractor while he controls traffic to facilitate a safe
passage through the works.

The works are weather dependent and the programmed start dates may
change. Any changes to the start date will be notified on the Advance Warning
signs which will be placed on site.

These works are an essential part of the Council’s ongoing maintenance and
improvement programme and are necessary to make sure the roads are kept
in an up to date, safe and useable condition. Your patience and co-operation
would be much appreciated to ensure that the Contractor is able to complete
the works as quickly as possible and with minimum inconvenience.

The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead would like to apologise in
advance for any inconvenience, noise or disruption caused as a result of these
works, and would like to thank you for your understanding and co-operation
while we are on site.
