New spending in our area 2010-15


Just as total public spending has been rising, so our area has benefitted from some new spending on large projects to improve our transport, education and environment.

Network Rail has just completed a very expensive major rebuild of Reading Station. This provides more rail capacity so we can have more mainline rail services. It has also improved road crossing the railway.

Wokingham has a new station and will soon have an important new Station link road which should help reduce congestion around the Station area.

This year we have three new primary schools. Plans are well advanced to create a new secondary school at Arborfield.

Bracknell and Wokingham College has undergone a major expansion with new buildings.

There have been several smaller flood schemes introduced, with work underway on the further work we are going to need to keep low lying residential areas dry.
