This scheme is being carried out by Solum. More information regarding the plans can be found on Solum's Guildford Station improvements webpage.

Information about services at Guilford station is available via Network Rail Guildford webpage.

Walnut Bridge works

Update 3 February

Guildford Borough Council will be closing Walnut Tree Close for five weeks from Monday 7 February to carry out these works.

The existing bridge over the River Wey will be replaced with a new bridge designed for non-motorised users, linking Guildford Rail Station to the Bedford Wharf area.

The location and alignment of the existing bridge means that visitors to Guildford who are less familiar with the area are often unaware of it, whilst the current width requires cyclists to dismount when travelling across it.

Access to the new bridge will no longer be hidden by the surrounding buildings on Walnut Tree Close, this should encourage greater use by those travelling between the rail station and town centre. The new bridge will also be considerably wider, providing an easier route for cyclists without the need to dismount. The scheme is being delivered by Guildford Borough Council.
