Next phase of highway improvement works underway

Date: 

Thursday, 7 March, 2019

To support the continued highway improvements across Woking Town Centre, the next phase of works has commenced along Christchurch Way/Chobham Road, Church Street East and Chertsey Road.

Church Street East
Works to resurface Church Street East between the junctions of Christchurch Way and Chobham Road will begin shortly. The current red brick-style surface will be replaced with the striking grey granite block paving already used to great effect in other parts of the town centre.

Works are scheduled to commence during late March, depending on the completion of works along Christchurch Way/Chobham Road. It is expected the works will take approximately six weeks.

Christchurch Way/Chobham Road
To facilitate these works and, maintain access to businesses located within the area, it is necessary to change Christchurch Way and Chobham Road temporarily from a one-way to a two-way carriageway.

To create a two-way carriageway, we will need to widen the existing road and remodel the junction between Church Street East and Chobham Road and the pedestrian footpath. To do so it is necessary to remove three parking bays located on Chobham Road.

This is a significant change to the road layout and works to prepare the highway are already underway. It is expected to take approximately three weeks to complete.

Chertsey Road
To continue the transformation of Woking Town Centre, the current highway surface will be replaced with grey granite block paving. Works are already underway between the junctions with Duke Street and Chertsey Road roundabout.

During these works a diversion route will be in operation. To reach the Chertsey Road roundabout, road users will be directed right onto Duke Street before turning left onto Broadway and continuing along Stanley Road to arrive at the roundabout. The diversion route will be clearly signposted.

Works are are expected to take approximately six weeks.

Much of these works are scheduled to take place out of hours to ensure disruption to businesses is kept to a minimum, whilst maintaining access to services areas.

We would like to thank residents, businesses and other road users for their ongoing patience during the project.
