A46 Coventry junctions upgrade
The A46 is a strategic link between the East and West Midlands, connecting Coventry and Warwickshire to the motorway network. Current congestion levels are having a serious effect on communities and businesses and could constrain future development in the area
We’re taking a phased approach to this scheme. We’re progressing with Binley junction (also known as the TGI Island) first as it suffers from heavy congestion, making journey times unreliable for road users. This will be followed by the Walsgrave junction upgrade.
Please see the 'Walsgrave junction' section below more information.
The Secretary of State for Transport has given permission for the A46 Coventry junctions upgrade at Binley Woods to proceed with the upgrade work set to start in the coming months.
The plans for the Binley junction will see the A46 dual carriageway become a flyover that will separate local traffic from using the A46 itself. This will mean that drivers staying on the A46 will not need to slow down for the roundabout, while also improving traffic flows for local businesses nearby. The design will also include improvements to the existing footways for pedestrians and cycle paths.
We’re developing options for the Walsgrave junction. When developing options, we need to ensure that the design meets the needs of road users and the community, whilst providing value for money.
The aims of the scheme are to:
- improve safety
- support the growing economy
- support the smooth flow of traffic
- increase capacity
- relieve congestion
