What's happening and when?

Work on the Kingston Station project started in April 2017.

There will be no impact on rail services as a result of these works.

We will provide regular updates for each phase throughout the duration of the works.

August update 

Work in August is centred on the junction of Fife Road and Wood Street.

During this period pedestrian routes on Fife Road and Wood Street have changed. 

Narrower crossing points from the station are in place during this phase of works and pedestrian wayfinding is in place. 

Pedestrian crossings outside the Rotunda Centre and at Cromwell Road are unaffected during these works.

An additional temporary crossing is now in place to the west of Fife Road to assist with pedestrian flows to and from the station to the town centre.

Due to the narrower crossing points, cyclists are required to dismount and use the footway during these works. Cyclists dismount signs are in place.

Temporary road layout changes are also in place at Fife Road. Access has been retained through Fife Road, but the exit out of Fife Road onto Wood Street has temporary changes at the mouth of the junction. Advisory signage is in place.

Parking is not expected to be affected, except in unforeseen circumstances. Pedestrian access to businesses will be maintained. 

Temporary traffic lights are in operation during these works.

A 24-hour lane closure is now in place on Wood Street through this phase of works. Two lanes will operate instead of three lanes. Advance warning signs are in place.

Work on the carriageway, which was expected to be complete by the end of August, has been delayed due to an unforeseen issue in the supply of building materials. Work will progress as quickly as possible and we will provide further updates shortly.

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

Throughout August there will be utility works taking place on roads in other areas in the borough, which are not related to Go Cycle, but which may result in delays. You can find out more about borough-wide roadworks here.
