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 June - Kingston Station, Wheatfield Way and Kingston High Street.
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 to remove the footbridge next to the station are now complete. You can view a timelapse of the works here.
Throughout June work will continue on Richmond Road installing granite setts before work commences on upgrading the cycle lane.
The existing cycle lane on Richmond Road has been temporarily closed during these works.

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 June work will continue to install a new cycle lane between College Roundabout and Brook St.
From early June, Brook St will be closed to all traffic for several weeks while works are undertaken. Buses will be on diversion.

Kingston High Street scheme:
The Kingston High Street scheme will extend the Portsmouth Road two-way cycle lane north along High Street towards the town centre.
The cycle lane and public realm improvements will run along High Street from the junction with South Lane through to the north side of the Kingston Hall Road/High Street roundabout.
Construction work on the Kingston High Street scheme is expected to complete on the carriageway in June, with footway works continuing through the summer.
