What's happening and when?
During the autumn of 2019 works have been underway to improve connectivity at Kingston Bridge and the western gateway to Kingston by upgrading the pedestrian and cycle facilities at the junction of Horse Fair and Clarence Street.
- These works are planned to be completed in early 2020.
- During these works there will be temporary closures and signed diversions.
- Carriageways will remain open and access to the town centre and local businesses will remain open as usual.
Works are underway to complete the Kingston Station project. This comprises the construction of the new Cycle Hub and the completion of the access points on either side of the new pedestrian and cycle bridge that was installed in March 2019.
- On the west side of the new bridge, works around the railway abutment will provide gradual ramps for cyclists and disabled access in addition to a stairway.
- On the east side of the new bridge, the new Cycle Hub will be constructed in the area between the bridge and the Kingston station building.
The pedestrian and cycle bridge will become accessible after the Cycle Hub construction works are completed in 2020.
The new pedestrian and cycle bridge was successfully installed over the weekend of 23-24 March 2019.
Different components of the scheme will be completed at different times and we will update this page with more information about our works.
- The new two-way cycle lane on Richmond Road is open.
- Cycle hoops outside the Rotunda and Tesco have been re-instated. More cycle racks are available in the temporary cycle parking area (next to Pret A Manger). The temporary bike parking facility is covered by CCTV and has room for 40 bikes.
- The temporary cycle area has been created to enable works to continue in preparation for the future new pedestrian and cycle footbridge and new Cycle Hub.
