Wokingham station taxi and bus works start0
The next phase of work in Wokingham’s new station link road project is due to start on May 6, to create a permanent new taxi rank and bus and travel interchange serving the newly-refurbished train station.
Wokingham Borough Council’s multi-million pound station link road scheme, and the new station now officially open, aim to create a 21st century travel centre, ease local traffic congestion and make the route safer for pedestrians and cyclists.
This third phase of the works, which is due to last six weeks, will focus on kerbing, additional footpaths and final surfacing for the new taxi rank and bus interchange, which are both being given new positions in Station Approach.
Wokingham Station was officially opened in March by Transport Minister Baroness Kramer following extensive refurbishment, and now has a bigger waiting area with more seating, larger booking hall and improved ticket facilities, state-of-the-art passenger information screens, new toilets including wheelchair accessible facilities, and a new café.
Funding for the refurbishment came from South West Trains, Network Rail, and Wokingham Borough Council.
