Active Travel Fund - Shinfield Road - Further Consultation

Closed 6 Dec 2021

Opened 26 Oct 2021


As set out in our Transport Strategy 2036, we want to make Reading a great place to live, work, study and play. Our vision is to develop a sustainable transport system that creates an attractive, green and vibrant town with neighbourhoods that promote healthy choices and wellbeing.

We’ve secured more than £1 million through the Government’s Active Travel Fund to help us achieve this.

As well as helping to improve the health, wellbeing and safety of everyone in Reading, these proposals are designed to support the local economy and help tackle the Climate Emergency.

About this formal consultation

We undertook an initial engagement exercise earlier this year on four proposals around Reading. Your feedback showed the Shinfield Road scheme was the most supported and least opposed, so this is the scheme we are taking forward.

We have used your feedback to develop our design of the scheme further. For example, we have included raised entry treatments on side roads where it is possible, in order to improve the safety of crossing pedestrians and cyclists. We have also included a new crossing facility near to the Chancellors Way junction to improve access to the bus stop for university students and staff.

We anticipate there will be future funding opportunities that we can use to develop the schemes that have not been taken forward to this consultation.

We want to hear your views on our walking and cycling proposals along Shinfield Road. Your feedback will be vital in helping to shape the design of the scheme further before it is developed next year.

This survey will close at 23:59 on Monday 6 December 2021
