Essential infrastructure

Several major highway links would be required components of the project, these are:

1 Existing A34 dual carriageway: augmented to a dual three-lane / dual four-lane motorway from M4 (junction 13) to the Ridgeway crossing. [Figure: 1]

2 New dual four-lane motorway link to the M40, including a new grade separated junction (6) with the airport access motorway spur. [Figure: 2] and [Figure: 3]

3 New A34 to M4 (junction 15: Swindon) link: dual three-lane carriageway. [Figure: 4]

4 Diversions of the A338 and A415: dual two-lane / three-lane carriageway from Grove to Kingston Bagpuize (A420). [Figure: 5]
