East Reading transport study public exhibition

A public exhibition on improving transport in east Reading will be held at St Lukes Parish Hall, Erleigh Road, on 24 January from 2:30 PM to 6:15 PM.

We think that in a compact town like Reading a large number of journeys should be possible through improved walking, cycling and public transport facilities.

There have been two transport study groups looking at this – and more – in east Reading – which have recently been rolled into one.

The Hospital and University group has been going for over a year and has resulted in a number of proposals: advisory cycle lanes, streetlight improvements, decluttering etc.

The Eastern Area Study – cemetery junction and the corridors leading up to it – has been going for less time. But has generated some ideas: cyclist priority areas at lights, joining up a cycle network, joining up the bus network etc.

More information in the Traffic Management Advisory Panel agenda.

Please come along to the exhibition where we will have detailed maps and transport planners to talk to.
