Drainage improvements on Warfield Street

Road closed sign next to road cone

Drainage improvement works will be taking place on the B3034 Warfield Street between Maize Lane and the B3022 Bracknell Road, from Monday 4 March to Friday 28 June 2024. Warfield Street will be closed during this time.

The existing highway drainage needs upgrading to stop flooding issues on Warfield Street. The highway drainage system will be replaced, and additional gullies will be installed to allow surface water to drain effectively and reduce future risk of flooding. This is part of the council’s planned drainage improvement programme.

Andrew Hunter, executive director, place, planning and regeneration, said: 

“We apologise for any disruption this work causes. However, the work is essential to reduce the long-standing flood issue in this location and ensure that our road network remains safe to use. Unfortunately, a full road closure to undertake this work is unavoidable due to the scale of the work involved.

“Residents and businesses have been informed and advanced warning information boards will be provided before and during the road closure to keep road users informed. There will be a signed diversion route in place. Bus operators have been advised and will be making alternative arrangements.”
