The Home Secretary Teresa May attended a Maidenhead town centre exhibition today. Staff from Mode Transport Planning were on hand to answer questions as the transportation advisors to the proposed development.


The regeneration scheme will deliver a mix of housing, retail, cafes and office accommodation in the heart of Maidenhead town centre;  the associated transport strategy includes:

  • Retaining the current one-way road  system, minimising the displacement of traffic and maintaining current access to the town centre and the Nicholsons Shopping Centre.
  • Widening of the local footpaths  to deliver a much improved and safer environment for pedestrian and cycles users,creating an attractive route to the town centre;
  • Key pedestrianised areas and improving the public realm;
  • Improved crossing facilities surrounding the site and improvements between the rail station and the town centre;
  • Provision of additional bus stops and shelter locations to allow improved public transport penetration of the town centre and add additional capacity to the network; and
  • Increased cycle parking provision for public use.

The application is envisaged to be submitted in the Autumn of 2014, with the scheme opening (subject to planning) in 2019.
