South East Water has confirmed that people living in California Country Park will have access to the bus, which will travel between the Country Park and Sheerlands Road, from 3rd February.

People will then be able to access their normal bus route to travel towards Wokingham or Reading.

Jeremy Dufour, Project Manager, said: “We’ve worked closely with Reading Buses throughout this project and I’m pleased we have been able to provide a new shuttle service to help residents in California Country Park.

“I’m really sorry about any disruption caused but our work to revamp the water network in the area is essential in order for us to maintain tap water supplies in the future.”

The water company is investing more than £1.4 million in the project and work started in Finchampstead Road in July.

More than a kilometre of pipe has been laid so far through Finchampstead Road, Billing Avenue, Gorse Ride South and Nine Mile Ride.

South East Water is currently working on the third and final phase of the project, between California Country Park and the junction of Nine Mile Ride and Park Lane.

Jeremy continued: “Our project is making really good progress and we are working on schedule.

“Our contractor is currently laying two pipes, one to strengthen the network as the community grows and another to replace an ageing pipe in the area.”
