Victoria Way closed for infrastructure improvements

Date: 

Thursday, 7 May, 2020

To support the delivery of low carbon, sustainable energy supplies across Woking Town Centre, it is necessary to close Victoria Way in both directions for a period of four weeks from Monday 11 May 2020.

During the works, Thameswey contractors, working on behalf of Woking Borough Council, will be installing district heating pipes underneath the carriageway providing the essential infrastructure required to deliver Woking’s low carbon future.

From Monday 11 May 2020, Victoria Way’s north and south-bound carriageways will be closed until Monday 8 June 2020.

During the works, a signed diversion route will be in operation using the following directions.

  • North-bound traffic will be diverted along Goldsworth Road and Church Street West before re-joining Victoria Way via Forge End.
  • South-bound traffic will be diverted along Lockfield Drive, Parley Drive, Triggs Lane and Wych Hill before re-joining the A320 at Turnoak roundabout.
  • South-bound traffic from Victoria Way to Forge End will be diverted via Lockfield Drive, Parley Drive, Goldsworth Road and Church Street West before turning left into Forge End.

The works are the first phase in connecting Poole Road Energy Centre, which is currently under construction, with the Victoria Square development. Subsequent phases will require the installation of district heating pipes along Forge End, Church Street East, Goldsworth Road and finally Poole Road.

Residents are advised to check with local bus operators to find out if there are any alterations to bus services during the works by visiting www.surreycc.gov.uk/busoperators

Woking Borough Council would like to thank local businesses, road users and residents for their patience during these important works.
