Have your say on options to improve the A308

A five-week consultation inviting the community to share their views on options to improve key sections of the A308 is now open. 

The Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead is initially considering how 21 sections of this key transport link - the A 308, , from the Bisham roundabout junction in the west, to the M25 in the east, could be improved over the coming years, and the council wants to hear your views to help decide on the best options to create safer, more user-friendly routes for all.

The council has undertaken a study to identify existing issues on the A308, including highways safety, congestion and promoting sustainable travel, and work up a range of different ways these could be addressed as well as support future sustainable economic growth as the Borough Local Plan is delivered.

Following initial conversations with stakeholders, the council initially identified 42 locations as worthy of further investigation for improvements and has since looked in more detail at 21, based on site-specific issues and data.

The locations for suggested improvements have been split into four areas along the length of the road - Maidenhead and West, Bray, Windsor and Dedworth, and Southeast Windsor and Old Windsor – and people can leave their feedback on the different options for each area online.

There will also be several drop-in consultation events taking place to allow residents to find out more about the options prior to sharing their feedback online. These all take place from 6pm until 7.30pm at: ....

The Art & Architecture of Imperial Vienna  with Dr Nicholas Watkins B.A. Hons., M.Phil., Ph.D on Tuesday July 5th

Vienna, that great border fortress on the Danube, is inseparably linked with the fate of the Habsburg dynasty, hereditary Arch Dukes of Austria and elected Holy Roman Emperors. The lecture begins with the rise to power of the Habsburg family and the formation of their collections. The lifting of the siege of Vienna in 1683 by the Ottoman army allowed the construction of a new imperial city with its magnificent Baroque palaces, churches and civic buildings.  Following the invasion of Napoleon and his abolition of the Holy Roman Empire, the Habsburg dynasty reinvented itself as Emperors of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The massive city walls were demolished and Vienna emerged as a modern city. Otto Wagner pioneered a new form of modern architecture and the modernist Secession movement promoted the highly disturbing paintings of Gustave Klimt, Egon Schiele and Oscar Kokoschka. All this came to an end in the catastrophe of the First World War and the destruction of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
