Crane game

photoFor all the league tables that tell you Reading is doing well, you can pretty much ignore them and have a look around town.

A crane count has long been a better barometer of a town’s economy than tables issued to newspapers. These cranes at Chatham Place are just one sign of success. Others can be seen all over as Cow Lane takes on a new look and the station continues to amaze.

Its success promotes developments all around it.

King’s Road develops at pace and even the Harris Arcade units are full. Empty shop units even in this age of the internet, are few in number.

So the next time Reading tops an economic league table, ignore it. You can see the economy all around you. It doesn’t lie and it’s not published by a PR company.
