August update

Work in August will shift over to the greenlink for preparatory work on the new footbridge.

There will be off-peak lanes closures on Wood Street in early August while granite bollards are installed outside the station.

New steps are also due to be installed outside Costa in September. The paving in the entire forecourt will also be cleaned and sealed.

The new two-way cycle lane on Richmond Road is open.

Cycle hoops outside the Rotunda and Tesco have been re-instated. More cycle racks are available in the temporary cycle parking area (next to Pret A Manger). The temporary bike parking facility is covered by CCTV and has room for 40 bikes.

The temporary cycle area has been created to enable works to continue in preparation for the future new pedestrian and cycle footbridge and new cycle hub with 250 spaces.

The night time taxi rank, loading bay and disabled bay outside the station remain temporarily closed. A taxi rank is available on Wood St opposite the station. The nearest disabled parking bay is available on Fife Road, 150m from the station.

The Kingston Station works are being co-ordinated with the works on the Go Cycle Wheatfield Way project to minimise traffic disruption. Find out more about works on Wheatfield Way here.

The Kingston Station project will regenerate the area around the station and works are due to be completed in 2019.  Different components of the scheme will be completed at different times and we will update this page with more information about our works.

Other construction progress

Construction works on the Wood Street carriageway outside Kingston station was completed in January 2018.

The following time-lapse shows a month of work in just over a minute.

The footbridge next to Kingston Station was successfully removed in April.

The works involved a complex operation to safely cut, lift and remove the bridge in separate sections as shown in the following timelapse.
