To support the continued economic growth of Woking Town Centre, a series of scheduled highway enhancement works to Victoria Way are to be brought forward to commence from Monday 20 March 2017.
Works to remove the central reservation along Victoria Way, between Church Street West and Lockfield Drive, will create a new junction enabling road users to turn right into Forge End. The new traffic light controlled junction will improve vehicular access to Church Street West.
In preparation for construction work to Victoria Square beginning in the summer, the A320 will also be adapted between Church Street West and Victoria Arch to provide construction loading and unloading facilities that will minimise future disruption to road users once building works begin.
During this phase of the works, it will be necessary to remove two pedestrian crossings by Toys R Us and the former Woking Market site. These will be replaced with temporary pedestrian crossings to maintain connectivity between the east and west sides of Woking Town Centre.
The enhancement works will mean that the existing diversion route and traffic restrictions currently in place along Victoria Way will remain in place until Thursday 11 May 2017.

In other development, as part of the Woking Integrated Transport Project, scheduled works to Chertsey Road and Duke Street will commence on Monday 27 March 2017. This will mean the closure of Chertsey Road between Chertsey House roundabout and Duke Street for six weeks.

Woking Borough Council would like to ask for your patience during this time. We are fully committed to keeping Woking Town Centre open for business and disruption to a minimum in order to deliver these significant highways enhancements that will benefit everyone in Woking Borough.
