Sustainable transport scheme for London Road and Park Road, Staines upon Thames

A308 London Road closure on 21 January

A308 London Road will be closed (westbound only) for one night on 21 January from 8pm to 6am between Crooked Billet Roundabout and Kingston Road. Vehicular access to your properties may be restricted during this closure. We would ask that if you need access to your vehicle during these hours you make alternative parking arrangements.

What will we be doing?

A308 London Road

The proposed improvements will involve the widening of the northern pavement to create a new off-road shared-use path for pedestrians and cyclists, allowing a minimum width of three metres where possible. A toucan crossing is to be installed at the junction with Fairfield Avenue (east) to make it easier and safer for people to cross the road and on street parking is to be provided outside the residential areas.

Highways England are planning to make improvements to the Crooked Billet roundabout making it safer and easier to use for pedestrians and cyclists. We are working together to make sure the proposals complement each other.

This work will be carried out under lane closures from Wednesday 8 January, for five months. Lane closures will be in place 24 hours a day/seven days a week.

Road closure

Sections of London Road will need to be closed for seven nights during this scheme for carriageway resurfacing and lining. This is currently scheduled for April 2020. A letter drop will be carried out prior to these road closures and this webpage will be updated.

Park Road

The improvements to this route will include creating a new shared-use path on the western end of Park Road to create a continuous off-road route between Stanwell Moor Road and Stanwell Village for pedestrians and cyclists.

This work will be carried out under lane closures from Monday 13 January, for three months. Lane closures will be in place 24hours a day/seven days a week.

Ditching and tree works will be carried out on Park Road from 6 January for two to three days in preparation for the pavement works.

Scheme background

The improvement works on London Road and Park Road are being delivered as part of the Wider Staines Sustainable Transport Package (STP). The Wider Staines STP is a package of measures that improve sustainable travel options in Stanwell, north Ashford and Staines town centre. The improvements are intended to make it easier and more appealing for people to get around the area on foot, by bicycle and by public transport.

How will this affect me?

Our contractor Mildren Construction will liaise with local businesses and residents regularly to ensure arrangements are clear and understood by all and that all needs are met.

The site manager will be responsible for keeping all relevant parties informed of any activities that may cause any inconvenience. Access will be maintained during agreed times for business deliveries and for waste collections as required. We will make sure you can get to and from your house or business when it is safe to do so. Please talk to a member of our staff on site about your access queries – talking to our staff can easily solve most issues.

Existing routes, pavements and crossing points will be maintained for the duration of the project, wherever possible. Where this is not possible diversions, temporary pavements and crossing points will be installed.

Enquiries about these schemes can be emailed to A308@surreycc.gov.uk
