A33 lane closures begin on 30 May

Work to create a bus lane on the A33 in south Reading will mean northbound lane closures during off-peak periods on weekdays, as well as some weekends, from Tuesday 30 May. The southbound carriageway may be affected from mid-June.

The bus lane is part of the south Reading mass rapid transport system (MRT) linking Mereoak Park & Ride with Reading town centre. Work on the section from Kennet Island to Imperial Way began in April.

Reading Borough Council say that work will be suspended during the Reading Festival (25-27 August), and on days when Reading FC are playing at home, and should complete by the end of November.
