The Royal Borough’s cabinet member for highways and transport has praised residents for their patience but admits they may have to wait for a resolution to the town’s traffic chaos.
He told the forum that results had been ‘inconclusive’ from last year’s three month consultation which asked residents whether they would like to see lights removed at the junctions of Clewer Hill Road and St Leonards Road, and Winkfield Road and Clewer Hill Road.
Cllr Rayner added that ‘minor alterations’ could be made this summer but any long-term schemes would have to wait until November when the Legoland season comes to an end.
Cllr Colin Rayner (Con, Horton and Wraysbury) said: “After having two very robust and interesting consultation evenings we came to the conclusion that we didn’t want to rush what we were planning to do.
“It has given us a great deal of information about what we need to do but the conclusion was inconclusive.
“We do thank the residents for letting us know their views during the Bonfire Night consultation.
“There were more sparks in that room than there were outside.”
Cabinet will discuss a report on Thursday, February 25, which recommends trialling a ‘no right turn restriction’ from St Leonards Road into Imperial Road during this year’s school summer holidays.
Cllr Colin Rayner (Con, Horton and Wraysbury) discussed the possible removal of traffic lights at key junctions in Windsor during a meeting of the Windsor Town Forum on Monday.
