  • Sharma supports calls for better coverage of fast broadband | Alok Sharma MP - Member of Parliament for Reading West
    central Reading but broadband suppliers are unable to offer speeds of more than 1Mb s despite speeds of over 30Mb s available in other nearby areas of Reading Andrew Young Managing Director of Abbey Windows said Our speed here is running at as little as 0 10Mb Downloading supplier information is slow and uploading videos to Youtube which are to be an integral part of our website can take 3 hours each In addition day to day use of the internet is very slow and with potentially ten of us here using it we need to ration its access to avoid reducing the speed further This has slowed our plans of expansion and further job creation The Coalition Government has pledged to secure superfast broadband in 90 per cent of premises and to provide universal access to standard broadband with a speed of at least 2Mbps by 2015 The Government has also committed 530m in funding to stimulate commercial investment to roll out high speed broadband in rural communities and to deliver a high speed service to areas which are not covered by a commercial roll out Alok Sharma has written to BT and to Government Ministers and had meetings on the issue of securing consistent coverage of superfast broadband in Berkshire Businesses and residents can register an interest in receiving superfast broadband online at www superfastberkshire org uk This is a website set up in conjunction with all of the unitary authorities in Berkshire as well as the TVB LEP which can be used by broadband providers to gauge the level of interest in an area and encourage them to invest Alok Sharma said Securing faster broadband in Reading is absolutely essential for business and for future growth and so I am delighted to support the campaign being spearheaded

  • Sharma calls on Council to change controversial bus lane warning signs | Alok Sharma MP - Member of Parliament for Reading West
    to better warn motorists of the bus only restriction on which Alok embarked after he was contacted by a number of affected local residents including Lieutenant Kenneth Guest Commanding Officer at The Salvation Army Reading West Corps Local residents raised concerns that the bus lane which is only in operation between the hours of 7 30am and 8 45am has been used to raise hundreds of thousands of pounds for Council coffers after an Appeals Adjudicator ruled against Reading Borough Council in a number of Penalty Charge Notice PCN appeal cases stating that the advance warning signs do not give adequate information of this bus lane and its time of operation Alok previously wrote to Reading Borough Council to request that the font size for the operating times of the bus lane is increased on the advance directional signs The Council responded by stating The advance directional signs ADS are information signs and fully comply with the Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 2002 TSRGD Following the Council s response Alok wrote to the Secretary of State for Transport to request clarification with regards to whether these bus lane advance warning signs meet statutory requirements The response from Norman Baker Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for Transport stated My officials have looked at the working drawing of the advance direction signs which you included in your letter and although the size of the font used on the sub plate is not shown suggest that it does not appear to meet statutory requirements Alok said I continue to have concerns that the Council has not heeded previous requests to increase the font size for the operating times of the bus lane on the advance directional signs which by any reasonable person s judgement is too small to be

  • Partial success in MP’s unfair bus lane camera campaign | Alok Sharma MP - Member of Parliament for Reading West
    in operation between the hours of 7 30am and 8 45am has been used to raise hundreds of thousands of pounds for Council coffers after an Appeals Adjudicator ruled against Reading Borough Council in a number of Penalty Charge Notice PCN appeal cases stating that the advance warning signs and the bus lane entry signs do not give adequate information about the bus lane In a further appeal in the case of Norman versus the Council the Adjudicator s decision of 2nd May 2012 upheld previous decisions as the signs do not give adequate information of this bus lane and its time of operation Alok wrote to the Director and Council Manager of Reading Borough Council in order to share his constituents concerns In its reply the Council states that it has now reviewed the signs in question in the light of the Appeals Adjudicator s decision As a result of this review the Council has confirmed in its letter to Alok that Officers have reviewed the signs in question in the light of Mr Nicholls s decision Adjustments have been made to them A Freedom of Information FoI request was also made to the Council requesting data on how much money the bus lane had raised and the dimensions of the advance warning signs in question In the Council s response measurements were provided for every part of the sign except the times the bus lane was in operation Alok said I was very surprised to read in the local media the suggestion by the lead Councillor for Transport Mr Page that I had been misled about the signage issue by my constituents If that was indeed the case why has the Council now changed some of the signs Given the Council s decision to alter the signs it would appear that the person who has actually been misled is Councillor Page himself Alok continued I do continue to have concerns about the advance warning signs which have not yet been changed The Council has informed me in writing that these advanced directional signs fully comply with the Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 2002 Having consulted with the House of Commons Library Transport specialist it would appear that the minimum font size for the bus lane operation times should be between 48 60mm However the actual height of the font varies between 25 30mm on this part of the signs I have therefore written to the Secretary of State to provide some clarification on this matter Alok concluded Even if the signs are within the statutory minimum requirements if the Council are serious about enforcing the bus lane and not just nurturing a cash cow why not listen to local residents take a pragmatic approach and improve the signposting The FoI request made by Alok shows that since the installation of a camera at the bus lane in July 2009 to date more than 9 570 PCNs have been issued Whilst the Council s FoI response did provide
