Why we're building a Winnersh relief road
The completed Winnersh Relief Road will reduce existing congestion through Winnersh village and on the wider road network. It is also designed to provide additional capacity, which will help the Borough meet its objectives for housing and economic growth, and job creation. The new road will also improve existing routes and create new connections for pedestrians and cyclists that live and work in the area between King Street Lane and Reading Road.
See the major new roads map.
Winnersh Relief Road Phase 1, which is now complete, connects the B3270 Lower Earley Way to the B3030 King Street Lane. Phase 2 will connect the B3030 King Street Lane to the A329 Reading Road. The scheme includes an extension to the existing Longdon Road and a new roundabout junction location on the A329 Reading Road, north of the M4 overbridge.
