A demonstration by taxi drivers over Royal Borough plans to change a licensing policy looks set to take place tomorrow.
Organisers have contacted the Advertiser and the council to confirm the route they are expected to take in convoy through Maidenhead from 8.30am.
The borough has posted a message on its website warning of potential traffic delays and advising drivers to take alternative routes where possible.
There are 96 hackney carriages in Windsor and Maidenhead and protest organisers hope all of them will take part in tomorrow's demonstration.
Roads expected to be affected by the demonstration include:
Stafferton Way (starting point)
King Street (passing the railway station)
St Ives Road
Organisers say they plan to drive around the same route in a loop for up to two hours.
The council is considering de-restricting the number of hackney carriage licenses it hands out and issuing five new licenses per month as of May 1.
In a statement it said it was 'disappointed' to hear the demonstration is due to go ahead.
A report on the proposals is due before the licensing panel on Monday.
