Works completed at Three Tuns junctionBy Jon Nurse

Six weeks of road works at the busy Three Tuns junction on the A329 were completed on schedule yesterday.
Improvements to the traffic lights and road at the junction in Earley are part of a scheme coming from a £2.75 million Government grant.
The changes are designed to ease congestion and make sustainable travel more appealing.
Councillor Keith Baker, executive member of highways and planning at Wokingham Borough Council, said: “We do understand these works will have been inconvenient, but we thank motorists and residents for their patience while these improvements were being carried out.”
The Three Tuns junction now has an ‘intelligent’ traffic light system which reacts to real time traffic flows.
The improved system should cut journey times and C02 emissions, while using low energy LEDs that need less maintenance and have a lower long term cost.
Other plans in the Local Sustainable Transport Fund project are to create a new cycle infrastructure along most of the A329 and upgrade bus stops.
