Virtual consultation for High Street scheme

Alert message sent 11/08/2020 17:06:00

Information sent on behalf of Slough Council

The council will be holding a series of online consultations for residents regarding the next stage of road improvement works in Langley High Street.

It was announced in July improvements were going ahead after the council secured more than £2.35million of funding.

The work will include creating a signal controlled junction at a known pinch point and will include provision for cyclists and pedestrians.

The measures are being introduced to mitigate the expected increase in the volume of traffic with the Network Rail closure of the popular commuter route of Hollow Hill Lane for the Western Rail extension, at a date yet to be determined, but before 2027.

Thames Valley Berkshire Local Enterprise Partnerhsip (LEP) awarded a total of £2.357million from its Local Growth Fund to the council, which will also contribute £1million of funding to this section of the works. This is part of a current total of £5mill of investment into the Langley road system.

There will be five online consultation sessions where different options to the High Street changes will be outlined by traffic engineers.

There will also be the possibility to ask questions in the sessions which have a limited capacity.

The online consultations will be held on Wednesday 19 August from 12pm until 1pm, Thursday 20 August starting from 11am until 12pm and Friday 21 August from 2pm until 3pm.

There will also be two online meetings the following week on Monday 24 August from 10am until 11am and Tuesday 25 August from 12pm until 1pm.

The code for each meeting is the same as is  http://bluejeans.com/125698521/6598. Bluejeans can be launched in a browser or by downloading an app.

We have changed the way this consultation is held due to the continuing challenges of the pandemic.

Results will be shared on the website and will be determined by this informal consultation.

If anyone is unable to attend but would like further information please contact tfs@slough.gov.uk.

The road improvements on the High Street will add to those already completed at Langley Railway Station and Harrow Market to be able to manage traffic, and possible congestion, from the Hollow Hill Lane closure, efficiently.

The High Street junction with Meadfield Road is set to become controlled by signals and from that junction to Elmhurst Road, the road is set to be widened and accommodate two lanes of traffic in both directions. There will also be provision for cyclists.

The majority of the widening work will use land already available to the council. Representatives are also in close contact with the Trustees of Langley Memorial Park to discuss utilising some of the perimeter of the park to implement the scheme. The park will be redesigned to accommodate more trees and be made accessible for more people to use.
