Reasons for the decision:

There are currently a series of priority chicanes on the road which were introduced a      number of years ago by the previous Highway Authority, Berkshire County Council. However, since implementation, car ownership has grown which has increased parking pressure in the area. On-street parking has been observed around the existing chicanes which causes both road safety and congestion issues.


Alternative options considered:

Not to install the waiting restrictions would result in the continuing safety and obstruction issues.
