We are encouraging people to have their say on proposals for better cycling and walking routes on the Bath Road and Castle Hill - including fully segregated cycle lanes - as part of the next stage of Reading’s Active Travel schemes.
We are looking at ways to improve cycling, walking and public transport on the Bath Road between Berkeley Avenue and Castle Hill/IDR roundabout; including the provision of safe, dedicated cycle lanes and new pedestrian crossing facilities.
We are now seeking further feedback specifically around the scheme’s traffic restriction measures, such as reducing an existing bus lane and removal of one lane on Castle Hill and Bath Road to accommodate a new segregated cycle lane.
This follows on from a previous consultation in July 2022, where we have taken on board feedback.
The consultation is from Thursday 2 February, until 23:59 on Thursday 23 February 2023.
