Flambard Way, Godalming
As part of the Prime Place development of new homes adjacent to Flambard Way in Godalming, improvement work on the traffic signals junctions and footways will be carried out over the coming months.
The works involve improvements to various junctions in the area immediately adjacent to the new development, with the ultimate aim of providing a safer environment for both pedestrians as well as road users (both vehicles and cycles).
Update – Friday 18 November
Work on Flambard Way is progressing very well. The contractors have completed all the work they can now behind the hoarding and therefore are now looking to get this removed and start work on the pavements.
As of 22nd November, there will minor carriageway incursion using cones so work can start on removing the hoarding, working on the boundary wall and fixing the damaged kerbs. There will not be any traffic management during these works, but cones will narrow the road just slightly to ensure safety of the workers and pedestrians.
The cones will be out between the hours of 9.30 and 4pm only. This phase is due to finish 30th November.
Thank you for your patience during this time.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can we adjust the phasing of temporary traffic signals?
All of the works are being carried out from within an approved traffic management scheme and, whilst there are temporary traffic signals in place, these lights are continually manually controlled during peak hours so as to ensure that delays to the adjoining roads are kept to a minimum.
Can we include filters to the temporary traffic signals?
Due to the area, and the current traffic signals in place - it is not possible to add a filter to these as there are too many phases to take into consideration.
There does not seem to be many workers on site?
The works currently being carried out on the junction of Wharf Street / Woolsack Way are working within a small area which is on the carriageway itself. For safety reasons to our contractors and pedestrians, it is not possible to have any more workers in that area.
