The project has recently encountered a number of unforeseen difficulties which, despite the best efforts of all parties, have resulted in minor delays to the completion of the project.  During a routine Wokingham Borough Council (WBC) site inspection, highways officers found some aspects of the public interface works that were not considered to be acceptable.  As such, WBC has temporarily withdrawn the Section 50 Licence, which is required to carry out work on a public highway.  

Activities have been continuing on the project away from the public highway interface areas and we have now re-commenced work on the Arborfield Road (A327) roundabout, near the Magpie and Parrot pub.  We are working closely with Wokingham Borough Council to resolve the remaining issues so that work at other key locations throughout the project can resume as soon as possible. Unfortunately, the project cannot commit to a definite end date until it is fully re-mobilised and has had the opportunity to review and amend the programme.
