The South Wokingham Distributor Road and its new connections into the road network expect pedestrians and cyclists to share the pavement or cyclists to share the road. With 2,500 houses planned in this area plus through traffic, congestion and safety concerns on the pavement will be a real barrier to people travelling on foot or by bike.
Local campaigners Peter Dennis, Rob Comber, Ian Shenton and Mariangela Ferrai ask for your support and to sign our petition calling for a redesign of the new roads to include dedicated space for each of cyclists and pedestrians, in line with newest government guidance.
We, the undersigned, call for redesign of the South Wokingham Distributor Road and its connections for safe walking and cycling.
UPDATE (18-03): 208 people signed our petition calling for redesign of the South Wokingham Distributor Road and its connections for safe walking and cycling. Liberal Democrat campaigner Rob Comber is presenting the petition to the Wokingham Borough Council meeting on 18th March 2021. Rob will ask the Council to make the new road and its connecting roundabouts safe and encouraging for non-motor vehicle users, to help prepare us for the next twenty years.
Adding your name below will no longer add you to the petition, but will sign you up for email updates on this issue.
