Road closures and diversions

As part of the Woking integrated transport project and Victoria Square development, there will be the occasional need to close sections of the highway and pedestrian footpaths.

Lane extension project on Lockfield Drive gets underway

Road users can look forward to smoother traffic flow through Woking town centre, as plans to widen Lockfield Drive on the approach to the junction with Victoria Way gets underway on Monday 16 November 2020. The works are expected to take 23 weeks to complete. 

The works will see a small section of highway verge along the approach to the bridge over the Basingstoke Canal reclaimed to accommodate additional queueing capacity, giving easy access to the new car park that is currently under construction, and easing congestion for traffic continuing east along the A320 towards the M25.

Improved highway safety measures will also be introduced, along with an upgraded traffic signal system.

During the works, Lockfield Drive will remain open in both directions. We would like to thank road users for their patience during these important works.

Commercial Way to close for highway improvements

To continue to support the transformation of Woking town centre, Commercial Way will be closed to all traffic from 5 Harland House to the junction with Chobham Road, for three months, from Thursday 8 October 2020.
