The measures were requested by Goring Parish Council, which also provided the majority of the funding and worked on the design. The rest came from the county council’s parish support budget. The scheme will be monitored over the next 12 months to see whether further action is needed.

Goring parish councillor, David Brooker, said: “The parish council believes that the completed works have already improved safety in High Street for pedestrians and mobility impaired people, which in turn we hope will improve footfall to local shops.”
