A dangerous road still hasn't been made 'safe' by the council after two men were struck and killed by a drug driving teenager two years ago.

Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead council was ordered to respond to the Berkshire coroner's office within 56 days of the inquest into the deaths of colleagues John Shackley and Jason Imi.

The inquest heard how on August 2, 2018, the pair were staying at the Royal Berkshire Hotel on the A329 London Road, Sunninghill for a work event.

That evening the group went for dinner at a restaurant just up the road from the hotel.

Mr Imi and Mr Shackley walked together at the back of the group along the pavement on the opposite side of the road to the hotel.

There is no pavement on the side of the road where the Royal Berkshire Hotel is located.

As they crossed the road both men had been thrown over the top of an Audi A5 sports car, driven by a newly qualified 17-year-old Max Coopey who was over the drug drive limit for cannabis.

As a result of the collision both men sustained fatal injuries and died at the scene.

Assistant coroner Alison McCormick raised concerns about visibility into the stretch of road during the inquest hearing.

The Berkshire Coroner's Office contacted the RBWM Highways Authority on July 12 last year with a Regulation 28, report to prevent future deaths.

The local council failed to take any action since the two deaths occurred.

Assistant Coroner Alison McCormick said: "I am concerned that there is no footpath on the A329 on the side of the road where the Royal Berkshire Hotel is located, meaning that any pedestrians walking into or out of the hotel entrance have to cross the A329 to get from or to a footpath, and that there is no street lighting in the vicinity of the hotel.

"In my opinion action should be taken to prevent future deaths and I believe your organisation has the power to take such action."

The Highways Authority was given 56 days to respond, namely by September 13 last year, but over one year later still have not done so.

A spokesman for the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead, said: “We are aware of the Coroner’s concerns relating to the lack of a footpath, street lighting and the tree canopy.

"Our traffic and road safety specialists have reviewed the issues and will be responding in detail to the Coroner’s Office.”
