South Western Relief Road
The South Western Relief Road (SWRR) is proposed in Stratford-on-Avon District Council’s Core Strategy to relieve traffic congestion in Stratford-upon-Avon town centre and routes to the south and west of the town. It will also provide required highway mitigation measures for the proposed Long Marston Airfield Garden Village development.
The route of the SWRR extends from the A3400 Shipston Road, across the B4632 Campden Road and on to the A439 Evesham Road/Luddington Road to the north of Stratford Racecourse. At this point the SWRR connects to the proposed Shottery Link Road (now known as the Western Relief Road) (WRR) which continues through to the A46 Alcester Road. Planning consent has been granted for the WRR, and is currently going the Technical Approval process. It is due to be delivered prior to the construction of the SWRR.
The SWRR and WRR, in combination, will be a new strategic A road providing a through route for traffic from the south of Stratford to the A46, avoiding the town centre and in particular the listed Clopton Bridge.
