A new footpath has been opened by the council that will provide a safer walking route along Oldfield Road.
The new path took eight weeks to complete and will benefit students who walk to Oldfield Primary School.
Cllr Phill Bicknell, (Con, Park) Royal Borough cabinet member for highways and transport said: “As we look to regenerate Maidenhead and the borough’s population continues to increase we need to make sure that all road users remain safe.
“Key routes such as the Stafferton Way link make travel easier for drivers, but we must also ensure our pedestrians and cyclists can travel safely and easily.
“The improvements to Oldfield Road will benefit all who use it, particularly families who use it daily for the school run. It has also created more space for wheelchair users and those with pushchairs.”
Essential drainage work was also completed while the works took place.
Paramedics were called to the scene of a medical emergency in Maidenhead on Monday morning (June 27).
A teenager who died after getting into difficulty in the Jubilee River has been described as a ‘gentle giant’ in a tribute from his school.
