Silchester Road/Faircross Road - reverse of the one way restriction

Closed 25 Oct 2019

Opened 3 Oct 2019


Reading Borough Council has been asked to conduct a formal statutory consultation on the reversal of the one way restriction on the following roads:

  • Silchester Road
  • Faircross Road

Please refer to the map and associated document at the bottom of the page.

Why We Are Consulting

There is an issue of traffic rat-running along Silchester Road and Faircross Road, then turning in the junction of Fawley Road to avoid traffic on the A4 Bath Road and the bus gate on Southcote Lane. This is undesirable and also poses risks to pedestrians, particularly children traveling to school. This also increases traffic levels in the already-congested, residential streets around Southcote Primary School during school drop-off times.
