Closure of A329 at Skew Bridge, 24 Dec – 2 Jan

West Berkshire Council have informed us that the A329 is to be closed between Pangbourne and Streatley, from 2300 hrs on Tuesday 24th December until Thursday 2nd January 2020. The start of the closure has been timed so that the Streatley Christmas Eve event can take place.

The closure will be at the bridge that takes the A329 across the railway between Beale Park and Mead Lane, Lower Basildon. This closure is so that Network Rail can remove the old redundant bridge adjacent to the one which now carries the A329, and has been organised to take advantage of the closure of the railway line over the holiday period.

Diversion will be via the A329 Reading Road to Cholsey, Nosworthy Way, the A4074 back to Reading, A4155 and A329 back to Pangbourne. More local routes may be available to suitably sized vehicles.

Enquiries should be addressed to Network Rail’s contractors on 0330 056 3530.

The closure can be viewed on (formerly under the following link: A329 Skew Bridge, Lower Basildon

Temporary traffic lights have already replaced the permanent installation for preparatory works.

Dependent on the state of the works, emergency service access will NOT be possible past the works.
