Drop in sessions to find out more about regeneration

Published: Tuesday, 19th February 2019

Two drop-in sessions are being held to give residents the opportunity to find out more about the changing face of Maidenhead.

The sessions aim to provide residents and businesses with information about the development sites in the town as well as the changes to the roads network and the front of the railway station.

People can drop into the former Next unit in the Nicholsons shopping centre between 1pm-7pm on Friday 1 March, and 10am-4pm on Saturday 2 March to find out more.

Shanly, Hub and Countryside will be in attendance to answer any questions on their respective developments, and images and models of the schemes will be available to view.

Project Centre will also be attending with information on the forecourt improvements at Maidenhead train station as well as the 2-way changes of Broadway, the missing link cycle work and  the six improved junction works.

Councillor Simon Dudley, leader of the council and lead member for Maidenhead regeneration and Maidenhead, says: “This will be an informative event for residents of the town as well as those who work in the town to find out about the changing face of Maidenhead.

“It is important that we share details of all these schemes via as many different channels as possible so people are aware of what changes will take place and when.

Councillor Phill Bicknell, lead member for highways, transport and Windsor, says: “We have recently received significant funding from the Thames Valley Berkshire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) for a variety of transport improvements.

“It is important that we share with residents and people who work in Maidenhead how this work, that has been modelled by highways engineers, may impact of their daily routine.”

The event will show all areas of development taking place in the town, along with the improvements to roads and junctions to support the regeneration, as well as additional infrastructure for pedestrians and cyclists.
