Petition to: rescind the decision to close the Cookham Causeway to vehicles in the event of closure of the B4447 road in case of flooding.

This petition is now closed, as its deadline has passed.

We the undersigned petition The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead to rescind the decision to close the Cookham Causeway to vehicles in the event of closure of the B4447 road in case of flooding. More details

More details from petition creator

The A4094 becomes impassable even to larger vehicles before the B4447 across Cookham Moor and therefore could not be used as an alternative for access to Cookham Village. Since the A4094 on the Bourne End side of Cookham Bridge also becomes impassable before the B4447, the Causeway remains the only means of access to Cookham Village.

It is unrealistic to prevent vehicular access to Cookham Village where there are a number of businesses which depend on transport links and many residents who are elderly and need to be able to come and go by car to lead normal lives.

The Risk Assessment carried out by the Borough does not take into account that the Causeway has been shared by vehicles and pedestrians for many years without any of the possible incidents identified occurring.
