Busy road to get 50,000 upgrade

Oxford Road
Facilities for cyclists will be improved on Reading's Oxford Road

Up to £50,000 will be spent upgrading a Berkshire town centre road to ease traffic congestion there.

The revamp of Reading's Oxford Road is also aimed at creating "a more pleasant urban environment", a spokesman for the borough council said.

It will link in with further long-term measures once the multi-million pound improvements to Reading Station and Cow Lane are complete, the spokesman added.

The work includes building kerbs and upgrading cyclists' facilities.

A review of street clutter will also take place at a council meeting on Tuesday.
