Coun­cil should have sorted round­about

The Wokingham Paper - - VIEWPOINTS -

I am grate­ful for your clar­i­fi­ca­tion that Hochtief is de­liv­er­ing the Shin­field Re­lief Road on be­half of Read­ing Univer­sity.

How­ever, Wok­ing­ham Bor­ough Coun­cil (WBC) is the statu­tory high­ways author­ity, not them and, as such, will have con­sid­ered the spec­i­fi­ca­tion of the new round­about near the Mag­pie & Par­rot pub and, ul­ti­mately, signed it off. If the ap­proach lanes are too nar­row as I be­lieve, it is WBC’s re­spon­si­bil­ity to have the sit­u­a­tion reme­died or face le­git­i­mate crit­i­cism that it is de­fi­cient and/or in­com­pe­tent in al­low­ing it to con­tinue.
