This week’s public notices include a number of alerts for road resurfacing, as well as improvements to Castle Hill Roundabout, affecting traffic in the town centre.
The Royal Borough has given notice that a number of major roads are set for resurfacing works.
The order gives the borough powers to close the affected roads to traffic and will come into effect on April 12. Works will need to be carried out within 18 months.
It will allow for resurfacing work on 14 stretches of road, but the exact date for when work will be carried out on each stretch has not yet been given.
The roads that will be affected are:
Another large road closure is on the westbound carriageway of Castle Hill for a distance of 30m from its junction with the Castle Hill roundabout, starting April 14.
The closure, which is for Castle Hill roundabout improvement works, will begin at 9am and continue until 3.30pm from Wednesday, April 14 until Friday, April 16.
Upper Bray Road will be closed between its junctions with Cannon Hill Close and Hanover Mead on April 11. This is for maintenance works of the Bailey bridge over The Cut.
The road will be closed from 9-4 on Sunday, April 11 and possibly at other such periods within 18 months to further Bailey Bridge repairs.
Sorbon Estates, developers of the Chapel Arches build, is looking to change one of the conditions of its planning permission.
Currently, its planned retail units are permitted only for the sale of ‘comparison goods’ – less frequently purchased products, such as clothing – not everyday items such as groceries.
Sorbon Estates wishes to remove this condition so it can ‘allow greater flexibility’ in seeking occupiers for this space, given the current changes to the economy.
The applicant’s representatives wrote: “Assisting in the full occupancy of these units will, in itself, add to the vitality and vibrancy of Maidenhead town centre.”
