5. Maidenhead Town Centre - 'Missing Links'
The Royal Borough has secured £2,241,787 of Local Growth Fund support to complete the ‘missing links’ between planned major development areas in and around Maidenhead and to improve their connectivity to the town centre and surrounding residential areas and local facilities. A new ‘inner-ring’ is proposed for pedestrians and cyclists, which will be tied into new / enhanced crossings of Strand Water and the A4.
The scheme is part of a wider phased re-development of Maidenhead town centre as set out in the Maidenhead Town Centre Area Action Plan (AAP). The Royal Borough is working closely with the appointed joint venture development partners for the sites at St Clouds Way, West Street, Reform Road and York Road to ensure that the scheme is integrated with their proposals. The project will also improve links to the recent major residential developments at Kidwells Close and Boulters Meadow and will link into the Maidenhead Waterways scheme.
The business case was approved by the Thames Valley Berkshire Local Transport Body on Thursday 15 November 2018.
