Station Road in Newbury will be closed to all vehicles between Bartholomew Street and Link Road from Wednesday 26th August 2020.
West Berkshire Council says that “the closure is necessary to facilitate and promote active travel within Newbury”.
The measure will be enforced by signs, bollards and large planters placed on the carriageway.
The Council say that they will closely monitor the scheme. If they think it is successful, it could be made permanent after 16 months.
This part of the road will still be open for pedestrians and cyclists.
