Labour’s London Road Blockage is No More!


Red line marks where the build-out used to be

Lots of you have been telling me how much better travelling from Park Ward into the centre of Reading is now that London Road’s “build-out” near the Royal Berkshire Hospital has been taken out.  No longer do you have to be in the centre lane to get past it, which caused a completely pointless tail-back, extra noise as well as pollution in the area.

This is one of many common-sense changes brought in by my Conservative-led administration headed by my colleague Richard Willis, the Lead Councillor for Transport.  Richard has been relishing getting rid of Labour’s obsession of bringing traffic to a halt when it simply didn’t need to. There is much more to be done but this is a very good start.

    Wazir – I think you are underselling this one. I personally couldn’t believe it when my neighbour said this was gone, this has been a plague on Cemetery Junction and the hospital for many years and has caused loads of pointless pollution.

    Finally looks like we have a Council that is thinking about me cycling to work and not having to breathe in so much pollution (and also thinking of people unfamiliar with the area chopping and changing lanes while trying to follow sat navs, it’s much safer!).

    Keep up the good work!
