Campaigners are calling for a new bus station in Windsor.
West Windsor Residents Association feels that the lack of a central station makes it hard for people to navigate the various bus stops in the town centre and get information they need on timetables.
WWRA has made the call as part of its response to the Royal Borough’s new transport plan consultation.
The Residents' Association represents 1,000 households in the Dedworth area. It would like the suggested bus station or hub to be based in the borough's Goswell car park.
The association is also calling for better information screens at Windsor's bus stops, as well as detailed plans for dealing with the congestion caused by major events at Windsor Racecourse and Legoland. It wants larger car parking spaces and garages with all new developments to cater for bigger vehicles, as well as an investigation of ways of improving road safety.
WWRA chairman John Holdstock said: “We very much hope the Royal Borough will consider our suggestions carefully as part of their consultation. We are keen to play an active part in the neighbourhood plans which the borough wishes to set up."
Comments from the WWRA were submitted to the council on Monday.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
Further details have been revealed over how many trains will be running in Slough, Windsor and Maidenhead during planned rail strikes later this month.
