Road Directions to the Montague Street and Kings Road Properties
Access by Road from the East (London, Wokingham, Earley, etc. direction) has to be by means where you do not enter Kings Road at Cemetery Junction. Instead you will need to carry on into London Road from that Junction. (I.e. go straight over, if approaching on the A4, or bear left, if approaching on the A329.) Once in London Road (the one that goes past Royal Berks. Hospital) keep in the right hand lane and turn right into Eldon Road. You will then come down to a junction with Kings Road. Turn Right there and keep in the right hand lane so as to be able to turn right again into Montague Street.
From the West, the eastbound lanes on Kings Road (towards London, from the Town Centre), remain open as before.
By Bus: Bus Stops are close to the corner: Montague St. / Kings Rd. (The Kings Road westbound bus lane remains open.)
