Views wanted over cross­roads re­vamp plan

The Wokingham Paper - - NEWS -

THE COUN­CIL has launched an ap­peal to res­i­dents to join in a con­sul­ta­tion over plans to re­vamp Cal­i­for­nia Cross­roads.

And to en­sure res­i­dents voices are heard, it is or­gan­is­ing an ex­hi­bi­tion event that will take place three times over the com­ing week.

The first will be be­tween 8.30am and 12.30pm this Satur­day and then again on Mon­day be­tween 2pm and

8pm and on Tues­day from 9am to 1pm. Each of the ses­sions will be held at Fin­champ­stead Bap­tist Church Cen­tre, Gorse Ride.

The project, Wok­ing­ham Bor­ough Coun­cil says, will re-de­sign of Cal­i­for­nia Cross Road at the junc­tion of Fin­champ­stead Road and

Nine Mile Ride Road to form what it hopes will be a key fo­cus point for busi­nesses, schools and res­i­dents in the area.

Cllr An­thony Pol­lock, ex­ec­u­tive mem­ber for high­ways and trans­port said: “This area is right at the heart of a lo­cal com­mu­nity with the pri­mary school, the nurs­ery school, the post of­fice, restau­rants, and many other fa­cil­i­ties and we want to work with the com­mu­nity to cre­ate a place that ben­e­fits lo­cal busi­ness own­ers and res­i­dents where pedes­tri­ans, cy­clists and ve­hi­cle traf­fic can co-ex­ist.”

Feed­back can be pro­vided ei­ther at the event or via the Cal­i­for­nia Cross por­tal on the Wok­ing­ham Bor­ough Coun­cil web­site. A du­ra­tion of four weeks has been made avail­able to pro­vide feed­back and com­ments, and there­fore th­ese will need to be sub­mit­ted by Jan­uary 4, 2019.
