Major road works are to commence on the Albert Road, which is the main traffic artery from Windsor into Old Windsor. The works are scheduled to commence from 19-00 hours on Friday 07 October until 07-00 hours on Monday 10 October.
The road will be CLOSED. Windsor Fire Station will also CLOSE at night if the Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service proposal is implemented from 01 October.
That would then mean that cover from Slough Fire Station (if available- they are a busy station) would have a lengthy travel via Datchet to attend any incident in Old Windsor.
This should be a serious concern for Old Windsor residents, since the time it takes for a fire appliance to arrive directly correlates with loss of life, injury and damage to property.
