- Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead
- United Kingdom
The previous (Liberal Democrat) Borough Administration raised £7m to build a Park and Ride on the floodplain just outside Windsor.
We don't think this would work financially (it would require millions to build and it is not certain that it would pay it's own way after that - the current P&R in Legoland has c. 20 cars a day).
We don't want to have a huge noise and light polluting 6000 seater car park on a beautiful meadow.
This is 1970s thinking. We believe that this idea came from an "Integrated Transport" strategy linking it to Crossrail - this Park and Ride could serve Heathrow.
The Royal Borough have not yet committed to or rejected the scheme but the speculation fueled by leaks to media has been extremely unsettling to local residents.
The debate that has ensued has identified numerous traffic issues in Eton and surrounding areas that need to be addressed. We believe this should be done by a working group of councillors, residents, local employers and the College working together.
- asks the Royal Borough to reject the proposed Park and Ride scheme.
