Work has begun this week to repair the 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.

During the works the bus lane is being opened to normal traffic.
