A SERIES of consultations will be launched for residents to have their say on the £2.35 million road improvement works in Langley High Street.

In July, Slough Borough Council announced it received a funding boost from the Thames Valley Berkshire Local Enterprise Partnership, which will also contribute £1 million in funds – all part of a £5 million of investment in the Langley road system.

The works include creating a signal-controlled junction and provisions for cyclists and pedestrians.

Measures are also being introduced to mitigate the expected increase of traffic when Hollow Hill Lane closes for the Western Rail Extension before 2027.

The road improvements on the High Street will add to completed works at Langley Railway Station and Harrow Market to be able to manage traffic, and possible congestion, from the Hollow Hill Lane closure.

The High Street junction with Meadfield Road is set to become controlled by signals where the road will be widened from that junction to Elmhurst Road to accommodate two lanes of traffic in both directions with provisions for cyclists.

Residents can have their say on five online consultation sessions where different options to the High Street changes will be outlined by traffic engineers.

The sessions will be held on:

  • Wednesday August 19 from 12pm until 1pm
  • Thursday August 20 starting at 11am until 12pm
  • Friday August 21 from 2pm until 3pm.
