New 20mph zone to be introduced in Newbury area

A 20mph speed zone is to be introduced in a West Berkshire area to stop drivers using it as a through route from the A339 to the A4.

The council said the new limit for the Queens Road area followed requests from residents and the Greenham Neighbourhood Action Group.

It added the road and its adjacent streets were narrow with street parking and some did not have pavements.

The signage and road markings are due to be in place by the end of October.
