@CllrTonyPage @readinglabour Cancel plans to switch off the traffic lights at the Broad St/West St junction

Click here for Petition to reinstate the traffic lights at Broad Street/West Street Junction.

Elderly and disabled people in particular would be put in danger. Generally, the loss of these lights would mean that pedestrians have to estimate whether or not they have time to cross the road before oncoming traffic reaches them. This is nerve wracking when you know that drivers may not allow for you to be slower than most.

In particular, blind people depend on the beeps that sound when the traffic lights are on green for pedestrians. Without those they are lost and have to depend on strangers who may know nothing about guiding them – nor care – to take them across. That at the same time as RBC is planning to cut spending on disabled adults supposedly in the interests of improving their independence!

Click here for Petition to reinstate the traffic lights at Broad Street/West Street Junction.

We are believe there has already been a fatality at Jacksons corner with a similar idea, but we haven’t seen any solid evidence of this, only in an article about the noise about the Broad Street turn off in this article from Get Reading, so until we get any kind of confirmation of it we will put it down to hearsay for the time being (I.e. an article from the reading post)

Tony Page has also given other controversial decisions such as in Shinfield Road http://www.getreading.co.uk/news/local-news/shinfield-roads-lights-safe-here-6248017 and agreeing to the building of flats next to one (and few) of the towns independent music venues (which we covered a in a previous post)

We would say find out all the facts for yourself. We are posting this as its a controversial decision, and the council need all the facts at their finger tips as regards to what people feel about the decision. If your unhappy with it we urge you to sign the petition, if on the other hand you feel it has benefited the town, let Tony Page aware. His direct email is tony.page@reading.gov.uk

Acid Techno Event in Reading

We would like to thank all the DJs who played at the last Acid909.  Trooper was playing some unreleased new tracks that had never been aired before.  Watch out for previews in the near future for this.

Judda played 2 killer sets that every Acid techno & Schranz purist would absolutely love.  Ray Von also played a banging set.

Spliffy B dropped an eclectic Acid Techno set of both US & London acid.  As always pulling out some obscure gems.

Acid909 would also like to thank the Venue for the event.  The bar staff as always were fantastic, The manageress also was fantastic, happy birthday to her too!  As always the door staff did a fantastic job

Most of all we want to thank the acid ravers, without you this event would not be possible.  As always a fantastic vibe 🙂

The next event will be in the Red room on April 5th, yes we are upsizing for this event! We will be linking up with Resonant Frequencies for an eclectic mix of music:  House, Drum n Bass, Progressive, Trance, Goa and as always TECHNO!!!!

Watch this space for announcements 😉

@CllrTonyPage Campaign to stop development next to Facebar, Reading

For the partition please click through on this sentance
A very well run venue that is highly proactive on stopping disruption is subject to new block of flats being built next door. There is concern they will make noise complaints even though the developers are well aware its next to a nightclub.

The nightclub employs several staff giving well needed work. The club has been very proactive in cutting noise. There is now better sound proofing, and the door staff do regular checks around the building to check you cant hear it out side noticably.

The club is now scanning ALL ID including of the promotors & DJs as a way of helping counteract any security issues\trouble.

The club is also one of the safest venues in town. It is also one of the few independant music venues that is highly regarded locally.

For more information on the planned development check out this article
