Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead Council have approved a £4.5 million works programme for highways and transport schemes.

Of the £4.5m, £1.4m will be spent on resurfacing and repairing roads, £550,000 replacing street lights and £480,000 on bridge works.

The rest will be spent on removing and improving traffic signals (£300,000), improving drainage (£150,000), creating safer routes to schools (£100,000) and repairing footways (£100,000).

Members of the cabinet prioritisation sub committee recently approved the highways works programmes for 2013/14.

A further £300,000 will be spent on removing and improving traffic signals, £150,000 on improving drainage, £100,000 to create safer routes to schools and £100,000 to repair footways. £142,000 will be spent on a range of improvements for cyclists.

Speaking to the Maidenhead Advertiser, Cllr Geoff Hill, cabinet member for highways and transport, said: “It is by listening to residents, ward members and parish councils that we have been able to create a scheme of works that are essential to maintaining safe roads, paths and cycle ways while at the same time creating a transport system that is efficient and fit for purpose.”
