What is happening when?
Kingston to Tolworth - Phase 1: Penrhyn Road
The route runs between Kingston College Roundabout and Surbiton Road via Penrhyn Road. Construction works commenced in January 2019. The main works are broadly complete and the route is planned to open to cyclists after the final surface is added to the cycle lane. The carriageway and pedestrian areas have been upgraded as the segregated cycle lanes have been constructed, and the road layout has been improved. The project will transform facilities for cyclists and extend the cycling network southwards between Kingston Town Centre and Surbiton. The northern end of the route connects with the Wheatfield Way scheme, while the southern end of the route links to the Surbiton to Kingston scheme at the junction of Surbiton Road and Surbiton Crescent. The Penrhyn Road section is the first phase of the Kingston to Tolworth scheme to be constructed.
Kingston to Tolworth - Phase 2: Ewell Road
In November 2018, the council's Environment & Sustainable Transport Committee agreed to proceed with Phase 2 of the Kingston to Tolworth scheme on Ewell Road. Design of this phase has been undertaken in 2019 in preparation for construction. Construction of this project is planned to begin during the winter and works are expected to continue until Spring 2021. The works will be undertaken by Kier Highways on behalf of the council along the A240 Ewell Road between the intersections with St Marks Hill (B3370) and Tolworth Close. It is anticipated that the works will proceed in phased sections, and works may be carried out in more than one location at any one time. In general, two-way vehicle access will be maintained along Ewell Road during the works. However, should any diversions be required, notification letters will be sent and clear signage will be in place.
The works will involve:
- Creation of new segregated cycle lanes
- Upgrades to pedestrian/cycle crossings and traffic signal junctions
- Upgrades to paving, footways, kerbs and central islands
- Changes to street lighting
- Resurfacing of the carriageway
- Changes to bus stops
- Changes to parking, loading and waiting restrictions
As part of these works, the following temporary measures may be expected at various stages:
- Pedestrian/cycle crossing closures
- Footway, carriageway and side road closures and incursions
- On-street parking suspensions
- Bus stop relocations
- Night works
The plan and timescales for the works is being developed with Transport for London and in coordination with other work planned by utility companies, and the initial phases of work are planned to include:
- Brown's Road to Hollyfield Road
- Broomfield Road to King Charles Road
- St Mark's Hill to Berrylands Road
