THE WOKINGHAM Borough Council has revealed its next plans for the borough's roads, with plans to resurface and repair "dozens of streets" in the area.

The £4.8 million project, spanning from now until 2022, plans on repairing road in 17 different locations in the borough including Finchampstead, Barkham, Wokingham, Arborfield, Shinfield and Earley.

The council's full resurfacing plan, including 46 separate projects, started on Monday, May 10 - this includes the night-works to improve the road surface on the Lower Earley roundabout at junctions with Mill Lane and Rushey way.

A number of footpath routes are also set to see improvements, including Denmark Avenue in Woodley to help Waingels College students travelling to and from school.
