Roadworks cause disruption in Maidenhead!!

Roadworks are currently consuming the town of Maidenhead. Major roads surrounding the town centre are affected by lane closures.

These roads include:

• The Broadway
• The A308 Frascati Way

The road improvements, which are set to last eights weeks from February 25th 2019, are causing extreme traffic, backing up onto Bad Godesberg Way and Marlow Road, especially during rush hour.

The Broadway is set to be converted to allow for two-way traffic. According to The Maidenhead Advertiser, this will then let drivers turn right out of Nicholson’s car park and onto Frascati Way.

Later this year, road closures will also take place on Grenfell Road, Queen Street and King Street. This is part of a £4.5 million project to improve the road network in the area.

Following council leader Simon Dudley’s statement that more can be done to limit the disruption caused by roadworks, the council has this week announced measures they will put in place to ensure this happens.

This includes:

• Traffic lights will be controlled manually during rush hour periods.
• Teams will also be working longer hours one day a week and also on weekends to ensure work is finished quickly.
