Toll Bar Island

Tollbar Island is one of the most heavily congested junctions in the region at peak times. In 2013, Highways England commenced a £106 million project to deliver major improvements to the A45 Stonebridge Highway and Tollbar End roundabout.  

The aims of the scheme are to:

  • reduce congestion and improve capacity at Tollbar End roundabout and on the A45 Stonebridge Highway
  • improve access to local businesses and Coventry Airport
  • improve pedestrian/cyclist access around Tollbar End roundabout

The project will:

  • reduce the volume of traffic using Tollbar End roundabout by providing a 2 lane dual carriageway underpass link between the A46 Coventry Eastern Bypass and the A45 Stonebridge Highway
  • enlarge the Tollbar roundabout and improve all the existing accesses
  • widen the existing A45 Stonebridge Highway to a 3 lane dual carriageway between the new Tollbar End roundabout and Stivichall junction to improve capacity and safety
  • improve access by changing the junction of Siskin Drive and Rowley Road from a roundabout to a traffic light controlled junction
  • install traffic lights on the new Tollbar End roundabout with signals connected to those at the Siskin Drive and Rowley Road junction to provide maximum efficiency in traffic flow
  • install new sign gantries and re-paint the lane markings to improve the northbound A46 Kenilworth Bypass approach to Stivichall junction and existing road signs in this area
  • improve pedestrian access around Tollbar End roundabout and create a new footpath/cycleway along the southern side of the A45 Stonebridge Highway, linking the two junctions together


The project began in August 2013 and is scheduled to be completed in December 2016.
