Drivers face 51 separate road closures across Wokingham borough

Drivers in Wokingham face more than 50 separate road closures around the borough in the first few months of 2020. Wokingham Borough Council has revealed it plans work for winter drainage work which will require closures on 51 roads in January and February. The work will see highway grips, which are shallow channels, cut across roads to help drain rainwater from rural locations.

The good news is that the closures will be carried out during off-peak daytime hours, between 9am and 4pm. Work on the project started in November and will eventually see the grips added to more than 100 roads.

The council says it is a rolling project, which means it is difficult to determine the exact dates for the work until closer to the time. However, advance notice will be given in surrounding roads and diversions will be in place.

People living in the roads will have access, but are warned they may be asked to wait or use the diversion to get to another entrance to the road.   Councillor Pauline Jorgensen, executive member for highways and transport, said: "We thank residents for their patience while we carry out this important maintenance to our roadside drainage systems. "With the whole programme planned for during off-peak hours we hope to ensure the road network is free of closures at the busiest times.

This important work will allow us to keep the network running at its best no matter how wet the weather is."

Anyone who might have a specific problem with the work can call the council on (0118) 974 6000.
