Victoria Way emergency closure and hotel panel update


Tuesday, 25 January, 2022

A Sir Robert McAlpine (SRM) spokesperson said: “Despite continued delays over recent weeks due to weather and wind conditions, works to install temporary fixings to the hotel panels has progressed.

“Weather permitting, we expect this phase of work to be complete in approximately one week, with carriageway repairs then progressing to allow reopening of the road during week commencing Monday 7 February 2022.

“Significant work and testing to identify a permanent solution continue. In partnership with our contractor, Prater, good progress is being made towards a final detailed proposal. This will of course need to be acceptable from both a technical and health and safety perspective. It is expected that agreement will be reached during February, allowing works to start on a permanent solution as soon as possible.

“The permanent remediation works will be installed to minimise impact on Victoria Square and Victoria Way that will enable the safe opening of the development in spring 2022.

“We continue to work together with Victoria Square Woking Limited, alongside Woking Borough Council, Surrey County Council and the Health and Safety Executive to resolve this matter as a priority.”
