Legal challenge to one-way road
The IDR
It is hoped the one-way plan will ease congestion on the IDR
An official legal challenge has been launched against controversial plans to turn Reading's ring road into a single one-way system.

Wokingham Borough Council has begun a statutory challenge to the traffic regulation order made by Reading Borough Council last month.

The order was needed for plans to make the town's Inner Distribution Road (IDR) run anti-clockwise.

Wokingham council claims that change will cause congestion on its roads.

The council is also pressing ahead with an application for a judicial review of the decision to make the order without first holding a public inquiry.

Reading Borough Council has insisted it will defend its decision through the courts.
