Finchampstead Ridges Road Closure

Update 20th April 2022

Wokingham Borough Council has identified a solution to the subsidence problem which led to the closure of the road at the War Memorial. Design work has now been completed and costed and work could commence by May/June 2022.

Update 13th April 2021

It is probably generally known that the stretch of road between the War Memorial and Dell Road has been closed due to a collapsed section. What might not be known is that the road is likely to be closed for up to a year due to the investigations necessary to determine the extent of the work required for the repairs to be carried out. The investigations will look at the underlying road structure, drainage systems in the area and the underlying earth structure. A major complication is that the road is adjacent to a steep hill which is moving and could cause the road to collapse further.
