Council is tackling the tat in a ‘roundabout’ sort of way

Repairs to a roundabout wrecked by a car crash last year will happen in the next three months.

The site at the end of the Aston Clinton bypass (pictured) has been an unsightly grot spot for anyone driving into Aylesbury since the accident in October.

Bucks County Council has now promised to carry out £17,000 repairs, although a date for the work to start has not yet been set.

The cost includes putting in new signs, with a more visible chevron sign system called chevroflex being installed, any maintenance work and traffic management.

The collision that damaged the roundabout saw one vehicle flip onto it and land upside down.

Work has begun this week to repair another roundabout outside Aylesbury College in Oxford Road.

The site was one of the first grot spots highlighted in the Bucks Herald’s campaign.

It had not been fixed since being damaged in an accident back in 2008, but when the council was contacted in January it said it would repair the roundabout.

The £14,000 works will involve removing the current raised roundabout, and replacing it with three ‘bell’ bollards.

The council said: “These will help give greater 
resilience should they be struck by vehicles in the future and will also increase visibility of the junction for road users.”

Through the three-week works minor patching will also take place, road markings will be refreshed and signs will be replaced.
