    Following statutory consultation, Reading Borough Council will soon be implementing 6′ 6″ width restrictions along Longship Way and Fair Isle Way. Signs are up signalling that work will commence on 22nd April 2014. This action resulted from residents lobbying ward councillors about use of Kennet Island as a short cut by traffic with some travelling at speed. The width restrictions will act as traffic calming features and prevent large commercial vehicles using the island to cut through.

    This follows the traffic regulaion order that was made on 2nd May 2013 that enabled enforcement of vehicles (other than buses) travelling through the bus gate restriction (which is still occuring in the absence of the camera not being installed) and enfoce a 20 miles per hour zone thoughout the development.
