FOLLOWING various resident and councillor concerns for driving safety at this roundabout in Earley, improvements have been made to make sight-lines clearer on the Cutbush Lane roundabout.

The news of the road improvements was announced on October 2, following complaints to the Wokingham Borough Council from Cllr Andrew Mickleburgh, Earley Town Councillor.

Cllr Mickelburgh said in a meeting, on September 17: “On August 28 a cyclist was airlifted to hospital following a serious accident at the Cutbush Lane/Carsharlton Way roundabout.

“For years, numerous requests had been made prior to this latest accident for safety improvements at this dangerous location.

“On the 3rd and 15th of this month I emailed Officers to ask that the site be visited as a matter of urgency and a plan devised to improve safety.

“You were copied into both emails. I have not received any responses.

“Could you please commit to getting this matter properly addressed without further delay?’

Cllr Pauline Jorgensen, executive member for highways and transport, responded saying she was already in the process of investigating ways to reduce speed and to improve sight lines at the roundabout.

Now the improvements have been made, she said on Facebook, on October 2: “Following a comment from a local resident about vegetation on the patch along Meldreth way from the Cutbush Lane roundabout I contacted highways and environment to ask them to cut back vegetation obstructing the path.

“I had already asked them to review sightlines and cut back vegetation on the roundabout - pleased to report this was done today.”

So far, no additional speed-reducing measures have been implemented.
