Why we're building a Winnersh Relief Road
Once completed, the Winnersh Relief Road will reduce existing congestion through Winnersh village and on the wider road network. It has also been designed to provide additional capacity, which will help the Borough meet its objectives economic growth and job creation. The new road once opened 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.

Phase 1 of the Relief Road connects the B3270 Lower Earley Way to the B3030 King Street Lane and provides access to the new Hatch Farm Dairies housing development.
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 on the A329 Reading Road, north of the M4 overbridge.
The final part of this project is the widening and dualling on Lower Earley Way between Showcase Roundabout the junction with Winnersh Relief Road Phase 1.
