Langley travel consultation

Slough Borough Council is consulting on a series of proposals aimed at improving the transport infrastructure in Langley.

The transport and highways team will be launching a public consultation on 28 July 2017 on ideas such as the experimental closing of Chequers Bridge in Hollow Hill Lane/Market Lane.

The council say this is in part a respons to a number of national strategic projects expected to happen between 2017 and 2024, including the Smart motorway project on the M4 (2017-2022), improvements to Langley Railway Station – being made in preparation of the start of Elizabeth Line (Crossrail) services in 2019, the relocation of the Heathrow Express (HEx) depot (2017-2019), WRLtH – the project to build a western rail link between Reading and Heathrow terminal 5 (2019-2024), and potentially a third runway at Heathrow, if approved.

Views are also being sought on a proposed package of improvements for Langley Railway Station.

Savio DeCruz, head of transport and highways at Slough Borough Council, said: “A lot is happening in the Langley area transport wise, and we want to hear what people think about it and how we can make things better.

“Closing Hollow Hill Lane under an experimental order now will allow us to understand where improvements need to be made to keep traffic moving.”

Councillor Fiza Matloob, commissioner for transport and highways, said: “A lot of the changes coming to Langley will benefit local residents, particularly improvements to the station.”
