Took action to get Station Road re-opened after roadworks

Station Road was closed between the flyover and the mini roundabout at the end of the slip road last weekend. This was to allow a gas connection to be laid across the road. It will be closed again for the same reason next weekend.

The road should have been re-opened at 5 pm on Sunday. I checked at 5:30 pm on Sunday evening and found that it had not been re-opened. I was concerned about the problems that would have been caused when people tried to get to work on Monday morning, particularly those catching trains. I therefore removed the cones and flattened the road closure signs, after checking that it was safe to do so.

I have asked West Berkshire Council to ensure that this does not happen again next weekend and instructions have been passed to the contractor.
