Lower Road Resurfacing Starts 5 November

The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead are planning to carry out resurfacing work to both the road and pavements commencing 5 November 2000.  The area to be surfaced will stretch from Grange Road on the corner by the Post Office right up to Bradcutts Lane opposite Whyteladyes Lane. It is expected that the work will take about six weeks.

Lower Road in need of Resurfacing

During the work the Royal Borough say that it will be necessary for a temporary road closure to prevent through traffic and to enable the construction work to be carried out safely and quickly. This may mean that at certain times, for short periods, access to individual properties may not be possible.


The work will include reinstating the existing kerbs to a higher level than before to meet current highway requirements. This may cause problems for those residents who normally park in the front of their homes and for whom the pavement has not been lowered. Residents in this position may be able to apply for Planning Permission to maintain access to their driveways. To obtain Planning Permission the width of the private drive must be a minimum of 2.7 meters and the length of the private drive must be a minimum of 4.8 meters. Anyone who thinks they may need Planning Permission and requires more information can contact John Rippon, the Project Engineer, on 01628 796513 or press the Guidance Notes button.



Lower Road is much in need of repair and is part of a programme set up by the Royal Borough to improve Cookham's road surfaces. If anyone would like further information or has any queries they can contact Customer Services at the Royal Borough on 01628 796150.
