Highway Improvement Schemes 2018

St Mary roundabout, Newport Isle of Wight

Not all highways improvement schemes fall within the scope of the contract that the council has with Island Roads. In certain cases, for example when government funding becomes available, the council is able to commission its own projects to improve junctions or certain stretches of road. This section provides details of new road improvement schemes and how you can have your say.

St Mary’s Junction Improvement

The Isle of Wight Council has secured government funding to improve traffic flows in and around Newport.  The first phase of this project is concentrating on the area around St Mary’s roundabout where traffic flows are predicted to increase in future years. A background paper outlining the existing and predicted vehicle movements was produced and outline proposals for improvements to the roundabout and the surrounding junctions put out to consultation in January 2018.

Arising out of the feedback from the consultation, the plans have been revised and will be presented for consideration by the Cabinet of the Isle of Wight Council on 13 September 2018. A plan showing the revised scheme can be viewed here
