In order to develop the proposed football stadium, leisure facilities and industrial potential of Nene Park a traffic impact assessment was required and carried out by BCAL. This identified the need to construct a new roundabout on the existing A6 trunk road.
BCAL were appointed by the Highways Agency to design and procure the roundabout under a Section 278 Agreement.
The scheme was complicated by the many underground services running adjacent to the existing A6 trunk road and the design was tailored to ensure that the costs of service diversion works was kept to a minimum. The project was constructed whilst maintaining through traffic along the A6 trunk road.
A comprehensive landscaping scheme designed for the roundabout was implemented and is now sponsored by the developer.
