Traf­fic flow­ing freely? Erm, re­ally?

The Wokingham Paper - - VIEWPOINTS -

Who­ever thinks that traf­fic is flow­ing fol­low­ing the re­cent re­stric­tions is liv­ing in cloud cuckoo land.

They should try ex­it­ing, or try­ing to get back into Oakey Drive at pretty much any time of the day. It’s usu­ally blocked by peo­ple queu­ing across the round­about out­side Tesco who refuse to leave a gap and seem con­fused when you in­di­cate to at­tempt to exit into Oakey Drive.

This obliv­i­ous per­son has clearly never tried to use any lo­cal roads re­cently, if it’s not ‘re­gen­er­a­tion’ road re­stric­tions then it’s the pe­cu­liar cy­cle­way works along the Wok­ing­ham Road.

I am not con­vinced that all of this ex­pense and chaos will make Wok­ing­ham any more than a small mar­ket town and will in ef­fect ruin its char­ac­ter, turn­ing it into a clone of ev­ery other place with the same shops and cafes.

The money would have been bet­ter spent on fix­ing pot­holes and fund­ing our lo­cal schools. L.J. Hu­bert, via email
