Burghfield flood alleviation scheme

The Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE) has started a programme of works in Burghfield to protect against the possibility of flooding.

The plan has been designed in full consultation with the Environment Agency and will have no adverse environmental impact on land surrounding AWE Burghfield.

There will be no public access.

AWE will ensure every effort is made to minimise the impact of construction work on the local affected community and protected wildlife habitats.

From 24 April an essential road closure will be in force along James Lane, Burghfield for an estimated nine week period.

The closure has been requested through the local council, West Berkshire by AWE to support the completion of this essential scheme.

Access will be maintained from the Burghfield Community Sports Association to its sports pitches during this time.

Drivers will see diversion signs in place which will divert them on a different route while this essential works takes place.
