Quote from: BrianB on February 13, 2014, 02:55:33 pmHow fortuitous that the B4000 was created in the late sixties. It was created as a "haul" road for the construction of the M4 Motorway. In other words it was the route used to haul construction materials. The work was carried out by Berkshire County council and straightened out several nasty bends and made the road much wider from the narrow country lane which it used to be. It also created a bypass for Shefford Woodlands.
QuoteJust out of interest the road is wider on it's section between Stockcross and the A338, than it is on its section between the A338 and Baydon. Designed and constructed by two different Highways departments at Berkshire County Council.
