Kingston Station

What's happening and when?

Updates

Spring 2020

Works are continuing to complete the Kingston Station project.  Different components of the scheme are being completed at different times and we will update this page with more information about our works.

Works have been undertaken 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.

The station forecourt area is complete and the new crossings and new two-way cycle lane on Richmond Road are open.

The temporary bike parking facility (next to Pret A Manger) is covered by CCTV and has room for 40 bikes.  The temporary cycle area has been created to enable works to construct the new Cycle hub and new riverlink pedestrian and cycle bridge.

Construction work is continuing on the new Cycle hub and the access points on either side of the new riverlink 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 is being constructed in the area between the bridge and the Kingston station building. 

The riverlink pedestrian and cycle bridge will become accessible after the Cycle Hub construction works are completed during the winter of 2020/21.

The new pedestrian and cycle bridge was successfully installed over the weekend of 23-24 March 2019. 

To watch the installation on time-lapse video and find out what was involved go to our dedicated webpage.  

Different components of the scheme will be completed at different times and we will update this page with more information about our works.
