Work set to start on improving Forlease Road junction

Pedestrians and cyclists can expect an easier route into town as busy Maidenhead junction is set for improvement.

Work on the Forlease Road/Moorbridge Road junction will begin on Monday, March 3 and is expected to last between six and eight weeks.

It will involve replacing the existing traffic signals and altering the phasing of the signal changes.

Cllr Geoff Hill, cabinet member for highways and transport, said: “At the moment it is a death trap waiting to happen."

"So many people have had near misses there including myself.

"The crossings are going to be made much larger.

“We ask residents to bear with us while the works are carried out and look forward to what will, in the long run, be much better access for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists at this busy junction.”

Temporary diversions along York Road, Bridge Street, Bridge Avenue and Moorbridge Road will be put in place.
