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 three Go Cycle schemes throughout July - Kingston Station, Wheatfield Way, Kingston High Street and New Malden to Raynes Park.
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.
The footbridge next to the station was removed in April. You can view a timelapse of the works here.
Work in August will shift to the green link for preparatory works for the replacement footbridge.
Works outside the Rotunda and Tesco are now complete and cycle hoops have been re-instated.
The forecourt paving will be cleaned and sealed once new steps have been installed outside Costa in the coming weeks.

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.
Throughout August work will commence on upgrading junctions at Clarence Street and Fairfield North. The works will include installation of a new pedestrian and cycle crossing and installation of a two-way segregated cycle lane. Lane closures will be in place and temporary traffic lights are expected to result in delays to journeys into the town centre.

Kingston High Street scheme:
The Kingston High Street scheme extends the Portsmouth Road two-way cycle lane north along High Street towards the town centre.
The new cycle lane, which opened in July, runs along High Street from the junction with South Lane through to the north side of the Kingston Hall Road/High Street roundabout.
The scheme is now substantially complete, with further footway works and completion of the pedestrian crossing near Kingston Hall roundabout due to be completed in August.

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 will be set up on the Raynes Park Recreation Ground in early August, with preliminary works to commence on site soon after.
