Gresley Way is regarded by many as the Stevenage East ring road. Indeed, traffic signs look to direct traffic seeking to access the A602 along this route to avoid the heavily congested Monkswood Way roundabout in Stevenage.
Provision of three traffic lights between Lanterns Lane and the Stevenage / Walkern Road roundabout, about 1,000 yards in length, will slow the traffic flow and bunch traffic between the proposed new access routes generating higher vehicle emissions affecting residents living adjacent to The White Way, Chalkdown and Uplands.
A single spine road leading off the Stevenage / Walkern Road roundabout and the proposed EOS1 southern entrance (junction 8) would still accommodate the volume of houses and facilities proposed, would be less costly to implement, reduce the build-out time, enable the retention of the tree line bund and significantly reduce inconvenience to residents and road users during the construction phase.
