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 in Kingston will continue to progress throughout 2018.
There will be construction works on four Go Cycle schemes throughout winter - Kingston Station, Wheatfield Way, New Malden to Raynes Park, and 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 outside the Rotunda and Tesco are now complete and cycle hoops have been re-instated.
Footbridge - The footbridge next to the station was removed in April 2018. You can view a timelapse of the works here.
Works during the winter will focus on the preparation for the installation of the new footbridge planned for Spring 2019.
Station forecourt - The forecourt paving will be cleaned and sealed once new steps have been installed outside Costa.

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, with improved crossings for pedestrians and cyclists.
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.
During October and November, work will be completing on the junctions and pedestrian areas at Clarence Street and Fairfield North. The works are scheduled to move to the new section outside the library and museum. Temporary lane adjustment and traffic management measures will be in place while works are underway. Expect potential delays to journeys into the town centre especially at peak times.

New Malden to Raynes Park scheme:
The new 1.2km walking and cycling path from New Malden to Raynes Park will open up a direct and entirely traffic-free route between New Malden Railway Station and Raynes Park Recreation Ground.
The path will run along Thames Water land, parallel to the railway line, passing under the A3 Kingston by-pass and avoiding busy or lengthy alternative routes. Journey times between these areas for pedestrians and cyclists will be improved.
A site compound has been set up on the Raynes Park Recreation Ground, and construction works have commenced.

Kingston to Kingston Vale scheme:
Works will have commenced in the Kingston Hill area by the end of October between Derwent Avenue and Warren Road. This will ultimately connect cycle traffic travelling between the A3 and Robin Hood roundabout near the entrance to Richmond Park, to the centre of Kingston and Kingston railway station.
