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 will continue to progress in Kingston throughout 2019. Works will commence on the Penrhyn Road project - the first phase of the Kingston to Tolworth scheme. Key sections of the schemes for Kingston Station, Wheatfield Way, New Malden to Raynes Park, and Kingston to Kingston Vale will be completed during 2019.
Works on all schemes are being coordinated to minimise traffic disruption and to ensure the town centre remains accessible.
Here's a summary of upcoming works.
Penrhyn Road scheme (Kingston to Tolworth phase 1)
The Penrhyn Road scheme is the first section of the Kingston to Tolworth scheme. The route of the Penrhyn Road scheme runs between College roundabout and Surbiton Road via Penrhyn Road. The northern end of the route at College Roundabout will link with the Wheatfield Way scheme. The southern end of the route will link to the Surbiton to Kingston scheme at the junction of Surbiton Road and Surbiton Crescent. Construction works will commence on Penrhyn Road near College roundabout.

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, and Richmond Road was completed in time for the Summer.
- Works outside the Rotunda and Tesco are now complete and cycle hoops have been re-instated.
- Footbridge - The new pedestrian and cycle bridge was successfully installed over the weekend of 23-24 March 2019. To watch the time-lapse video and see what was involved go to the dedicated web page.
The previous footbridge next to the station was removed in April 2018. You can view a timelapse of the works here.
Works over the forthcoming months will focus on the installation of the new cycling hub, and upgrading the area surrounding Kingston Station.

Wheatfield Way scheme:
- The crossing at Orchard Road has reopened.
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.
Works on the carriageway have been completed and all lanes are fully open. Final stage works on the pedestrian and cycling areas are underway.
You can find out more about the Wheatfield Way works on this page.
New Malden to Raynes Park scheme:
From the 1st week in April the footbridge between Alric Avenue and Dukes Avenue is closed for refurbishment.
The temporary closure will last for approximately 2-3 months, to allow for safe working on and around the bridge. In the meantime pedestrians and cyclists are requested to travel along Coombe Road.
We aim to have the bridge reopended by July.
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 bypass and avoiding busy or lengthy alternative routes. Journey times between these areas for pedestrians and cyclists will be improved.
Raynes Park - A site compound has been set up on the Raynes Park Recreation Ground, and construction works have commenced on the off-road route.
You can keep up to date on all the upcoming work for the New Malden to Raynes Park scheme on this page.
