The Brooklands Business Park Accessibility Project
The Brooklands Business Park Accessibility Project is a scheme to improve accessibility between the Brooklands Business Park, Weybridge railway station, and Weybridge town centre. The scheme is particularly aimed at improving travel choice and sustainable transport accessibility. It will make travel options more inclusive and help to reduce the reliance on travelling by car in the area. The scheme, that is being developed in partnership with Elmbridge Borough Council, aims to support Brooklands as an attractive location for businesses to be based.
The following elements are being taken forward through the project:
- Provision of a cycling and walking route between the Brooklands Business Park, Weybridge Railway Station and towards Weybridge town centre.
- Improving the pedestrian refuges in the vicinity of Weybridge Railway Station.
- Changes at Weybridge Railway Station such as increasing cycle storage.
- Improvements to and safeguarding access through private roads in Brooklands.
- Providing better public bus facilities (shelters, real-time passenger information, raising kerbs and provision of clearway markings).
- Improving wayfinding signage in the area to assist with navigation for those travelling on foot or by bike.
How is the project being funded?
Surrey County Council submitted a bid for Local Growth Funding from the Enterprise M3 Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) to fund the majority of the project. The Business Case for £2,172,000 LEP funding has been approved and funding awarded. The total (full scope) project budget is £2,896,000 with the additional funding coming from local contribution.
Progress to date
The project is substantially completed. There are some remaining signage installations and works at bus stops to be finalised to complete the project.
