Road closures and diversions

To continue to support the economic growth of Woking Town Centre, it is necessary to carry out essential utilities works, such as installing additional gas and water supplies, to Victoria Way.

Extension to Victoria Way highway works

A series of scheduled highway enhancement works to Victoria Way are to be brought forward to commence from Monday 20 March 2017 for scheduled completion by Thursday 11 May 2017.

Works include:

  • removal of the central reservation along Victoria Way, between Church Street West and Lockfield Drive, to create a new junction enabling road users to turn right into Forge End.
  • adaptation to Victoria Way between Church Street West and Victoria Arch to create construction loading and unloading facilities that will minimise future disruption to road users.
  • removal of two pedestrian crossings by Toys R Us and the former Woking Market site. These will be replaced with temporary pedestrian crossings.
