Public consultation for the proposed highway is now closed.
The purpose of the consultation was to provide information on three alternative routes to serve new development in south Wokingham. The South Wokingham Distributor Road is designed to provide access to the new development and to minimise development traffic impacts on residential roads in south Wokingham.
