East Reading MRT - on hold

East Reading MRT, the segregated bus, cycle and walking route between Thames Valley Business Park and Napier Road to central Reading is now on hold. The planning application for the scheme was rejected by neighbouring authority Wokingham Borough Council (WBC) for a second time in December 2018 and Reading Borough Council have now officially withdrawn the application. This has also resulted in the funding from the Thames Valley Berkshire - Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) being withdrawn and reallocated to other schemes across Berkshire.
