Scheme start date
We are aiming to start these works in January. We do not have an exact date yet and will update once we do.
What are we going to do?
The scheme on Walnut Tree Close aims to reduce the amount of traffic using the road, particularly vehicles that use the road as a through-route between the A25 and the gyratory.
To achieve this aim we are planning to undertake a trial one-way traffic restriction, which will permit only northbound traffic along a section Walnut Tree Close/Woodbridge Meadows
The closure will be in place from the Royal Mail sorting office, and we will be building a turning circle at this location.
- Fewer vehicles rat-running along the route into the town centre
- Improve road safety for all users
- Reduce peak-hour queuing on the road and conflict with gyratory traffic
- Improve quality of local environment to encourage more trips on foot and bicycle
This is part of the Town Centre Master plan which aims to create a more attractive pedestrian environment which reconnects the town centre to the river and creates a sequence of appealing streets and spaces, redefining the Guildford experience. More information on Guildford major transport schemes.
