A 'haunted house' attraction could be built at Legoland Windsor if a planning application is approved by the Royal Borough.
Windsor urban development control panel will meet on Wednesday to discuss the application, which will see the building of a drop ride with a queue line area, landscaping and alterations to the pathway, if approved.
Council highways officers raised concerns the new attraction at the Winkfield Road theme park would lead to an increase in visitor numbers which would worsen congestion issues during the park's peak hours.
However, planning officers have recommended the panel approves the application as it would not lead to an increase in traffic.
An agenda report for the meeting stated: "It is not considered that the development works proposed in this application will increase traffic on the local highway network significantly enough to warrant refusal of this planning application on highway grounds."
The report also noted Legoland had implemented a number of traffic control features to deal with congestion and is working on further improvements.
The meeting will be held at Windsor Guildhall.
