Road closures and diversions

Working in partnership, Surrey County Council and Woking Borough Council have commenced work on a multi-million pound highway improvement project that will, when completed, significantly enhance traffic flow in the area and make it safer for pedestrians and cyclists, whilst stimulating economic growth within Woking Town Centre.

To continue to support the economic growth of Woking Town Centre, it is necessary to carry out essential utilities works, such as installing additional gas and water supplies, to Victoria Way. By carrying out these works now, we hope to minimise future disruption to the highway network.

 

 

 

Victoria Way diversion route: Monday 6 February to Thursday 11th May 2017

  • Victoria Way (south-bound carriageway) will be reduced to one lane contra-flow only from the junction of Lockfield Drive to Victoria Arch.
  • Traffic travelling north-bound will be diverted along Goldsworth Road, Church Street West and Forge End onto Victoria Square.
  • Church Street West between the junctions of Forge End and Victoria Way will remain closed to through traffic.
  • To support the movement of traffic through the diversion, there will be no access to Goldsworth Road from the Morrison's Roundabout.
  • Diversion route with clear signage will be in place.

Major highway works extended in Woking Town Centre

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.

Enhancement works along Chertsey Road to begin

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.

The works will introduce important changes to the highway network that will see:

  • the direction of traffic between Chertsey House roundabout and the Chertsey Road/Duke Street junction reversed (from south-bound to north-bound) to enable traffic to flow the length of Chertsey Road
  • traffic turn right on to Chertsey Road from Duke Street
  • traffic turn both ways on to Duke Street from Locke Way
  • widening of the pedestrian footpath

  • changes to on-street parking arrangements on Chertsey Road and Duke Street (subject to separate formal consultation).

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.
