Vauxhall way Improvements

Closed 18 Nov 2019

Opened 10 Oct 2019

Feedback Updated 21 Feb 2020

We Asked

The council consulted the public on proposals for the Vauxhall Way improvements. Vauxhall Way, Hitchin Road and Stopsley is the most well developed scheme and people had the opportunity to comment on the latest design to manage congestion. 

You Said

Feedback from the public consultation demonstrated an agreement with the need to improve safety, traffic flow, pedestrian and cycling facilities. However, it was also noted that there are concerns that a signalised junction would make traffic flow worse and increase pollution. Congestion experienced on Stockingstone Road was also highlighted as an issue, as well as turning issues in and out of Birchen Grove. 

We Did

In order to demonstrate how Vauxhall Way wil operate with the anticipated future growth comparing a scenario where we do not convert the roundabout into a signalised junction, Luton Council has developed movie clips which can be viewed by visiting  www.luton.gov.uk and searching 'Major Road Improvements' in the search bar. 

The council will also be investigating solutions to the Stockingstone Road congestion issues as part of the 2020/2021 programme.

Regarding the turning issues at the Birchen Grove junction the council will be investigating a solution with the aim to be implemented before the end of this scheme.
