The East Reading Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) scheme is a segregated fast track public transport, pedestrian and cycle route that will support enhanced accessibility and continued sustainable growth in Reading, Wokingham Borough and the wider area. The MRT route is proposed to link the A3290 at Thames Valley Park, adjacent to the proposed new Park & Ride facility, to Napier Road, Reading town centre and the railway station. The scheme is being promoted by Reading Borough Council (RBC), Wokingham Borough Council (WBC) and Thames Valley Berkshire Local Enterprise Partnership (TVB LEP).

Following the public exhibitions, the information boards can be found below and are also on display at the Civic Offices for the time of the consultation period.

The full planning application with all accompanying documents is available online for public consultation via the Planning Portal (Application No 171108) and http://www.wokingham.gov.uk/planning/planning-applications (Application No 172048).
