Bramley Lane Accessibility Improvements Scheme
- Phase 1 - Bramley Lane, Bramley
- Phase 2 - The Street, Silchester Road and Sherfield Road
Bramley Railway Station
Improving driver behaviour and pedestrian accessibility & safety in the vicinity of Bramley Primary School. To repair the potholes and damage to the road surface
It is expected that the Bramley Lane Accessibility Improvement Scheme will be carried out in two phases:
Installation of improved pedestrian access routes, including new footways, informal pedestrian crossing features and formalised car parking to better manage the vehicle flow around the entrance of the school. The new footway access will allow full use by prams, buggies and wheelchairs and the mobility impaired.
This phase of work has been planned to coincide with the closure of Bramley Lane which is necessary to carry out culvert works to improve the gas mains and drainage facilities over the school summer holidays in July - October 2012.

The Contractor for the works is Hope & Clay Construction Ltd. During construction of the scheme it will be necessary to have planned road closures over a few nights and in the daytime on a few weekends. There may also be the need for temporary traffic lights to allow safe working by the contractor on the highway. Access to businesses and local facilities will be maintained at all times, but there may be disruption, so please leave extra time for your journey. Diversion routes will be put in place during the closures which will be adequately signed.
Advanced work signs will be erected on site well before the works start, by the contractors. These signs will include an emergency contact number and further information regarding the planned road closures.
It is expected that the main road closure will be put in place on Friday nights ready for the works on Saturday and Sunday and the duration of the road closures will be dependent upon weather.
