We’re on a road to nowhere
IT’S FAIR to say that the regeneration roadworks are giving us all a major headache.
Roads are clogged up, buses are running late and, on Monday, a signal failure caused chaos on the railways.
So news another road will be dug up for water mains works will be welcomed as much as an angry wasp is welcomed to a jam factory.
With most major routes in and out of Wokingham affected by cones, traffic lights and queues, stress levels, let alone pollution levels, are rising.
It cannot be right that 10-minute car journeys take two hours, buses are delayed or cancelled and everyone is at breaking point.
The borough council’s highways team need to do things differently.
Communication of works needs to be clearer, notices placed where people can read them and planning needs to be smarter.
We simply can’t carry on like this – we’re not getting anywhere fast.
