24 Hour pedestrianisation of Newbury Town Centre to end 7 September
The temporary measure to make Newbury Town Centre pedestrianised 24 hours a day will come to an end on 7 September. Times for the town centre pedestrianised zone will then revert back to 10am to 5pm.
Around the clock pedestrianisation was introduced as part of a range of measures to support the local economy as shops began to reopen in June.
Richard Somner, West Berkshire’s Executive Member for Highways and Transport said: “Round the clock pedestrianisation was a really helpful measure to enable Newbury Town Centre to re-open safely.
“However, as we move further forward with the recovery and as schools return, we can return the pedestrianisation to the normal time of 10am to 5pm to ease pressure on local roads.”
