Redlands: New Transport Ideas Revealed

New Ideas In Redlands: What Do You Think?
A range of Local Sustainable Transport Fund (LSTF) schemes are proposed in East Reading, specifically along London, Kendrick, Redlands, Erleigh and Alexandra Roads, and Southampton and Silver Streets.
 
All the measures are aimed at encouraging cycling and walking as realistic alternatives to the car. The proposed improvements will be paid for from Reading Borough Council’s Successful LSTF bid.
 
The plans include improved street lighting in and around these roads, meaning roads and footpaths in East Reading will benefit from the new ’whiter’ lighting which greatly improves the clarity of lit objects, which improves the feeling of safety during the evening hours for pedestrians and reduces the power consumption of the lanterns.
