Emmbrook Road closed 8 to 13 April

A section of Emmbrook Road in Wokingham will be shut from 8 to 13 April for work as part of the new A329 (NCN422) Cycleway.


It will be closed between the A329 Reading Road and Lowther Road for Wokingham Borough Council to realign the junction, do kerbing, footway/cycleway improvements and carriageway surfacing.


The closure has been timed to coincide with the Easter school holidays because traffic is lighter.


Residents within the closure will still have access but there may be times when they’re asked to wait while a piece of work is completed.


The diversion for this closure is via Lowther Road, Old Forest Road and A329 Reading Road, or this route reversed.


The work in Emmbrook Road is part of the fourth 1.5km section of the new A329 (NCN422) Cycleway currently being built by the borough council from Landen Grove through Woosehill Roundabout to Holt Lane.


1.5-metre-wide cycle lanes are being created along both sides of Reading Road and will link into an existing on-carriageway cycleway.


These crossing points, signs, as well as bus stops, will be upgraded and large sections of footpath resurfaced. Work on this fourth phase is expected to last until the summer.


More details about the fourth section of the A329 Cycleway can be found on the council’s news site.


The latest traffic conditions across the borough are also available by signing up to the council’s text and email alerts or by checking roadworks.org.
