A 20mph speed limit is set to be imposed in a street in Bray and a number of roads are due for closure around Maidenhead, this week’s public notices have revealed.
Traffic and roads:
A new 20mph speed limit will be implemented along a section of Upper Bray Road, starting on Monday, March 22.
A 500 metre stretch of the road, starting at the junction with the A308 and ending at the junction with High Street, will be affected by the change.
Meanwhile, a number of roads are due to close around the area over the next few weeks.
In Woodlands Park, no vehicles will be able to travel along Breadcroft Lane between its junction with Cherry Garden Lane up to The Old Cottage while fibre optic ducting works take place.
The road will be shut between 8am and 6pm each day from Friday, March 26 and Thursday, April 1. There will be no diversion route.
More fibre optic works will also be taking place near Waltham St Lawrence, in Plough Lane.
