Reading Transport Strategy 2036

Closed 13 Oct 2019

Opened 29 Jul 2019

Feedback expected 29 Nov 2019

Overview

We’re planning for the future of transport in Reading and we want to know what you think.

Transport matters to all of us. It connects us with our workplaces, schools, friends and families. It affects our health, the air we breathe, and the streets where we live. It helps our economy to grow and our town to thrive, and it can make the environment around us clean and friendly or dirty and dangerous.

Future travel in Reading is about more than moving people from A to B. It must be affordable and accessible, improve people’s health and wellbeing, support a growing and inclusive economy, enable a carbon neutral future for Reading and harness the latest technology.

The strategy we develop now will shape our town’s transport network to 2036 and beyond, informing the decisions we take, the funding we secure and the changes we make.

What Happens Next

Thanks for all your input into this consultation which closed on 20th September 2019.

We are now bringing togther all the responses we have received from the online survey with those from our public events and the focus groups held with residents, neighbouring local authorities, transport companies, local business and schools. 

We plan to share what we have heard in November, and we will then start writing our new transport strategy. This should be ready in spring/summer 2020 when we will share it again.

Keep an eye out on the Council's website and social media channels for updates.
