The chance to have your say and to learn more about the proposed new A4 cycleway is now open to villagers in Burnham and Taplow.

Buckinghamshire County Council (BCC) opened the ‘have your say’ questionnaire on Monday and it is hosting two public exhibitions for residents to find out more.

The cycleway and footpath improvements planned to go alongside the A4 Bath Road, passing through Taplow and Burnham, aim to make it easier for residents on foot or bike to get to bus and railway links.

On Friday there will be an exhibition at the Taplow Village Centre in the High Street from 2pm to 8pm, and

on Saturday, there will also be an exhibition at Burnham Park Hall in Windsor Lane from 11am to 3pm.

Mark Shaw, cabinet member for transport, said: “By encouraging walking and cycling to and from the local stations, and improving bus-train connections, I hope we’ll ease traffic congestion on the main road.”

The consultation closes on Monday, October 24.

The questionnaire can be completed at www.buckscc.gov.uk/about-your-council/have-your-say/

    I agree! The Lycra -clad brigade are the worst. They almost never use these cycle paths.

    Whilst this might be useful, if one uses an example of that provided by the Borough and the so called Sustrans, actually funded by tax payers,at enormous expense on the A4 West side of Maidenhead it will be a waste of money. It is largely ignored & unused, with cyclists using whatever footpath they choose & in respect of the A4 on the so called shared facility, on the South Side of the road, it might as well not be there as cyclists usually use the North side frequently at speeds often faster than motor traffic.
