Go Cycle construction works
This page has been created to provide you with a monthly update of planned works on our Go Cycle schemes.
Go Cycle construction works in Kingston are planned to continue throughout 2018.
There will be construction works on four Go Cycle schemes throughout March - Surbiton to Kingston, Kingston Station, Wheatfield Way and Kingston to Kingston Vale.
Works on all schemes are being co-ordinated to minimise traffic disruption and to ensure the town centre remains accessible.
Here's a summary of upcoming works.
Kingston Station scheme:
Works are aimed at improving pedestrian and cycling links between the station and the historic town centre, the Thames Path and north Kingston.
Construction works on the carriageway on Wood Street outside Kingston station were completed in January 2018. Works are ongoing on the footways outside the station.
Works throughout April will focus on the removal of the footbridge over Wood St/Kingsgate Road. The bridge removal will take place on the weekend of April 14 and 15 and will result in traffic diversions which are likely to impact journeys. You can find out all the information about the footbridge removal at www.kingston.gov.uk/footbridge.

Wheatfield Way scheme:
This scheme will provide a segregated two-way cycle lane between College roundabout and Kingston Station on sections of the A307 on Wheatfield Way and Clarence Street.
Once completed the scheme will be a key link to several Go Cycle projects. The route will create a north/south connection to enable cyclists to bypass the busy town centre and create wider and more direct crossings for both pedestrians and cyclists.
The first section of the new two-way segregated cycle lane was constructed on the eastern footway of Clarence St (between Wilkos and the Rotunda) in 2017.
Works on the remaining sections of the Wheatfield Way scheme commenced in January 2018.
Throughout April and May there will be excavation and modifications made to the central reservations, realignment of kerbs, installation of new paving and signal crossing improvements.

Kingston to Kingston Vale scheme:
Construction of the Kingston to Kingston Vale route began in January 2018.
The first phase of work includes the creation of a 'quietway' route along Canbury Park Road, Queen Elizabeth Road and Gordon Road which will be shared between vehicles and cyclists.
The works during April will include modification to traffic islands and existing speed humps with the installation of new tactile paving.

Surbiton to Kingston scheme:
The Surbiton to Kingston route is aimed at improving connectivity on bike and foot between the two centres and includes a number of roads in Surbiton.
Works on Avenue Elmers and Palace Road were completed in February 2017, a new one-way cycle lane on St Mark's Hill was opened in April 2017 and new permanent traffic restrictions have been installed on Surbiton Crescent.
The final phase of works for the Surbiton to Kingston route on Claremont Road and Maple Road are expected to be complete in April.
