Why we're building a North Wokingham Distributor Road
There will be 4,000 new homes built in Wokingham by 2026 as part of our projects to build more houses. The North Wokingham Distributor Road (NWDR) will provide access to the new developments and help minimise the impact of increased traffic.
To find out more about the North Wokingham Major Development see the:
The North Wokingham Distributor Road (NWDR) consists of 7 separate schemes, 4 of which are developer led (Bell Foundry Lane, Matthewsgreen, Kentwood Farm and Keephatch Beech) and three that are being delivered by Wokingham Borough Council which are West of Old Forest Road (WOFR), Toutley Road and Ashridge Farm.
Once completed, the NWDR will connect the A329 near the BP garage on Reading Road, with the A329(M) Reading to Bracknell motorway near the Coppid Beech roundabout junction. The new road will also provide a link from Winnersh to the A329(M) avoiding Wokingham town centre.
The NWDR will also provide access to the developments at Matthewsgreen, Kentwood Farm and Keephatch Beech and provide these areas with convenient and direct access to the motorway network as it will give access to both A329 (M) and M4.
