A404 'cruising' layby cleared

Bushes have been mown away at a notorious 'cruising' layby on the A404 in Bisham, near Maidenhead.

A Highways Agency team moved in and cleared away overgrowing vegetation over five days from March 5 to Friday last week.

The work, which has opened up picnic benches to view from the road, comes a year after complaints surfaced about men using it as a meeting point for casual sex.

Highways Agency spokesman James Wright said: "We hope this work will help address local people’s concerns about anti-social activity at the layby – certainly early feedback has been good."

The work is part of a larger plan to address the 'overall safety' of the area by improving lighting, entrance and exit roads and the amount of parking.
