The scheme involves a range of road construction together with a flood alleviation scheme. Swindon's growth and the subsequent strains on its transport and drainage networks require a scheme aimed at reducing the flow of traffic levels flowing through the town centre.

Improvement works are to be carried out a number of junctions along the Great Western Way. Work at Bruce Street Bridges and Newcombe Drive is to be progressed as a priority. The work includes realignment of carriageways and footways to improve traffic flow and traffic capacity. At the same time, three major flood risk assessment programmes have all identified the catchment areas associated with Rodbourne Lagoons, as an area of high flood risk.

The contract is expected to begin on in March next year for a period of 16 months.
