Works will improve pedestrian experience of Windsor town centre


Works to improve pedestrian access in Windsor will start shortly. 

The works on Thames Street and Romney Lock Car Park are part of a wider scheme to support economic activity in Windsor by improving the pedestrian environment and wayfinding within the town. 

The first phase of works will start on 6 September 2021, and will include:

•    Installation of two new benches within Romney Lock Car Park 
•    Footway build-out and paving improvements, outside Theatre Royal, Thames Street
•    Infill of existing parking bays and paving improvements, outside Lloyds Bank, Thames Street 

Councillor Gerry Clark, cabinet member for transport and infrastructure, said: “These works will create more space for pedestrians now that our streets are getting busier, and aid those who may still wish to practise social distancing. They will enable residents and visitors to enjoy the town centre and have space to chat or linger for a while.

“They are relatively small changes that will help increase economic activity in the town.

“There should be minimal disruption during the works as roads and businesses will remain open.”
