Public notices: ‘No waiting’ restrictions planned for more than 100 Slough streets

George Roberts

CHALVEY 133372-9

Chalvey Road West is one of the streets that will have new restrictions

Restrictions are set to be imposed on more than 100 streets around Slough and new free parking spaces will be created on others, as revealed by the latest public notices in the Express.

Roads and traffic:

The council is set to impose ‘no waiting at any time restrictions’ along sections of many of Slough’s roads.

Vehicles will no longer be able to stop and linger along various sections of the borough’s highway network, on streets ranging from small residential roads to well-used routes like Bath Road and Chalvey High Street.

In some instances the restrictions will only apply at certain times and on certain days of the week.

Most of the restrictions will be imposed at the junctions with other roads, but in many cases vehicles will also no longer be allowed to loiter outside residential properties. See overleaf for the exhaustive list of streets affected.

Meanwhile, some roads will have the ‘no waiting at any time’ restrictions removed, including on a section of Banbury Avenue, and parts of Goodman Park.

The council is also planning to create some areas of free parking on some of Slough’s roads.

This will include one hour of free parking on sections of Bath Road and Farnham Road, and two hours free parking on some other sections of Bath Road.

New pay and display parking areas are also going to be installed in Hatfield Road, with spaces for 13 vehicles on the northern section and for four vehicles on the southern section.

It is not yet clear when these restrictions will come into force.

Sections on a number of roads will also be made eligible for resident permit holders only starting on Friday, March 5.

These streets are Alexandra Road; Brammas Close; Chalvey Road West; Church Street; Clive Court; High Street Chalvey; Ladbrooke Road; Turton Road and White Hart Road.

In Windsor, a 30mph speed limit is set to be imposed along Silwood Road starting on Monday.

A 200-metre section of the road starting from its junction with the A329 London Road will have an altered speed limit.

    In amongst the notices is the plan to put single yellow lines outside St Bernards Convent - presumably to stop some of the parents who park there. Sounds reasonable, as it was definitely a road safety hazard. Well, unless you talked to local people who would explain that there are already double yellows at the entrance of Turner Road and that doesn't stop the same parents virtually blocking the road at pickup time. What is noticeable is Savio's team continues to make it as difficult as possible for car use for busy parents, but does not work with others to provide sensible alternative solutions - surely better drop off parking facilities within St Bernards would be a massive help here rather than just painting yellow lines everywhere without providing parent parking ? Oh of course to contrast the Curve library in the centre of town has been allocated four council only parking spaces with no time limits, and no doubt no charges either. Still complete double standards on car use and car parking by the council.
