A320 North of Woking improvements

Making improvements to the A320 in Runnymede between Chertsey and Ottershaw

Surrey County Council and Runnymede Borough Council have been awarded £41.8 million by Homes England's Housing Infrastructure Fund to improve the A320.

The works will ensure there is extra capacity on the busy stretch of road between Chertsey and Ottershaw to unlock future housing sites.

The works will make sure all the junctions and roads work well together to improve traffic flow. There will also be improvements for walkers and cyclists, including new crossing points and wider foot and cycle paths, and improved access to public transport.

Upgrading the A320 means approximately 3,000 new homes can be built across ten sites in Runnymede – a key component of the borough's recently approved Local Plan. The largest site, Longcross Garden Village, could provide at least 1,700 homes.

Share your views

We would like your views on travelling along the A320 – how do you find the route and what could improve it? In particular, we're interested to know how we could increase active and sustainable travel along the route, which includes journeys made by bike, on foot or by public transport.

You can submit your comments at A320 North of Woking Improvements - Commonplace. This webpage will be open for comments until Sunday 14 March.

We will listen to your feedback and use it to help shape our designs, which we will share with you in the spring. You will also have an opportunity to give your feedback on these emerging designs when they are published.
