Published: 16 Dec 2013 14:00
The alert was issued for the lower River Loddon including Swallowfield, Arborfield, Shinfield, Barkham, Lower Earley, Sindlesham, Winnersh, Woodley, Hurst and Waltham St Lawrence.
In a message sent out to park and ride users, the council apologised for any inconvenience caused and added: "The Lower River Loddon is not as high as forecast but that there is an additional band of heavy rain scheduled for our region from around 7pm this evening. As a result of this information the flood alert for the Lower River Loddon is unlikely to be withdrawn until mid-day on Tuesday.
"Therefore the Loddon Bridge Park and Ride will remain closed on Tuesday with a re-opening of the site Wednesday, as long as the all clear has been received from the Environment Agency."
