A report which asks the council to approve a three-year work programme for the borough’s highways is set to be discussed on Monday.
A report to be heard by the highways, transport and environment overview and scrutiny panel asks it to recommend cabinet approves £6.3million worth of improvements.
The report includes a £300,000 project to replacing street lighting around the borough, and a £75,000 scheme to make bus stops more accessible. It asks for £80,000 for an as yet unidentified scheme to improve safe travel to schools.
A £60,000 toucan crossing in Stafferton Way and a £20,000 cycle route from Maidenhead Bridge to the town centre are among the projects included on the programme.
It also asks for approval for a heavy goods vehicle restriction in Ascot Road, which costs £20,000, and £60,000 of waterproofing work to Victoria Bridge which crosses the Thames at Datchet.
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.
