These Orders were promoted by Reading BC to enlarge and modify junction 11 on the M4 and the A33 to ease congestion and provide a better route for public transport. The decision was delayed awaiting funding decisions following inquiry in October 2004.

The Council was advised and represented by David Elvin QC and Reuben Taylor.
