Runnymede major transport schemes

There are currently two major transport schemes in the borough of Runnymede:

Within Runnymede, Egham's close proximity to Heathrow Airport, the M25 and London, makes it an economically significant area. Although Egham is home to some major businesses such as British Gas and Veolia Water, located on the A308 The Causeway, developer investment and recruitment is constrained due to congestion and poor transport infrastructure in the area.

Runnymede Roundabout project

Runnymede Roundabout is situated at the junction of the A30, Egham By-pass, A308 The Causeway and next to junction 13 of the M25 at Egham. It is one of the busiest junctions in Surrey, suffering from high levels of congestion during the peak periods. Pedestrians and cyclists also have difficulties in crossing the roads at the roundabout.

Our main contractor, Buckingham Group, began construction work on Runnymede Roundabout on Sunday 9 July 2017. Due to the discovery of unmapped utility services, construction work is expected to take slightly longer than originally anticipated and is expected to complete in summer 2018.

What is happening?

Significant measures are planned to improve traffic management and the efficiency of vehicle flows as well as making it easier for pedestrians and cyclists to safely navigate Runnymede Roundabout. These measures include:

  • Widening and resurfacing the carriageway.
  • Providing a new 'U-turn' facility between the A30 'Glanty Loop' off-slip and the A308 to Staines.
  • Introducing signals at the junctions.
  • Installing toucan crossing facilities across the junction arms.
  • Improving drainage infrastructure.
  • Creating a new shared-use path to the north-east of the roundabout.

The outline plans for the Runnymede Roundabout improvement works can be found at the bottom of this page, these plans cover the A30 Glanty Loop approach and the roundabout itself.

Egham Sustainable Transport Package (STP)

Egham STP includes walking, cycling and bus improvements, focusing on the A308 The Causeway between Woodhaw roundabout and Staines Bridge the key business corridor in the area. The potential reduction in traffic from the measures identified above will assist in tackling congestion in the area and benefit local, national and international businesses.

Latest update

Works commenced on site on 22 August 2016 and works were substantially completed by January 2017.
