A12 Redbridge Roundabout – road safety measures and new wayfinding signage

Closed 4 Aug 2017

Opened 7 Jul 2017

Overview

We are planning changes to Redbridge Roundabout to improve safety and traffic flows. The key features of our plans are:

  • Improved directional and lane markings with arrows and text to better direct traffic
  • Cutting back the kerb line to remove a pinch point on the southeastern edge of the roundabout
  • New wayfinding signage to help pedestrians and cyclists navigate the roundabout
  • New shared pedestrian and cycle facility on southern footway between Royston Gardens and Redbridge Lane West

The changes to the lane markings and kerb line are designed to improve the flow of traffic in all lanes. Widening the road on the southeastern edge will provide more space for larger vehicles, making it easier for them to navigate and exit the Roundabout.

The drawings below show the changes in more detail. We plan to implement these changes in spring 2018.

Redbridge Lane East

We assessed the option of installing traffic signals at the junction of Redbridge Lane East and Redbridge Roundabout to reduce congestion on local roads.  Our data showed that installing new signals would make traffic conditions worse and lengthen queues on Redbridge Lane East.

We expect the measures to improve traffic flow will make it easier for vehicles to join the roundabout from Redbridge Lane East.
