Shared Footway / Cycle Way - Stockcross

Published: 26 January 2024

Project Notification Ref: PRJ23-440

Description of work:

The construction of a shared footway / cycleway alongside the B4000 on its north side, between Stockcross (opposite the Post Office) and the roundabout at the A4.

This update is to inform Stakeholders that commencing Monday 29th January 2024 for up to 4 days (subject to weather), the West Berkshire Council appointed contractor will be laying a new asphalt footway surface along the length of the constructed footway along the north side of the B4000. These works are to start from the B4000 side of the A4 roundabout, continuing in the west direction past Rookswood road junction and ending at Stockcross Village (opposite Stockcross Post Office).

Please note that the contractor hours will be between 07:30 and 17:00 on each of these days. The Temporary traffic signals shall be located for short lengths along the B4000 during the footway surfacing but will operate for 24 hours each day. The work length controlled by temporary signals shall be moved along the site to follow the progress of footway surfacing. The temporary signals are necessary to protect the workforce during construction and enable the works to proceed safely by protecting the public and road users.

We apologise in advance for any disruption, noise or inconvenience during this work. Vehicle access for residents and businesses along the route shall remain open during the contractors work but a brief interruption is possible as the contractor passes across each private access.
