Church Street East, Christchurch Way and Chobham Road, Woking, Pedestrianisation

Closes 23 Apr 2021

Opened 18 Mar 2021

Overview

Thank you for your interest in our prohibition of vehicles proposal in Church Street East, Church Path and Christchurch Way, Woking. 

The legislation we must follow before introducing this scheme means that we need to allow objections and comments from the public to be considered before a final decision is reached about whether or not to go ahead with our preferred scheme in its current form.

The proposal:

Description. The proposal is to introduce a TRO which creates an at all times a pedestrian zone within Church Street from the junction with Chobham Road west towards the Town Square. Access to authorised vehicles would be controlled from Christchurch Way by means of rising bollards and a keypad / intercom system linked to the town centre car park office.


Authorised vehicles would include, emergency vehicles, highways maintenance vehicles, service vehicles (accessing developments within the pedestrianised area), and developments which have off-street parking accessed from the affected roads. In addition, where Church Street East is closed to the west of Chobham Road, this would be controlled by removable bollards allowing a second point of access for emergency vehicles. In forming this new access arrangement, the current one system which runs from Church Street East into Christchurch Way and then into Chobham Road, would be revoked.


Reason – The pedestrianisation of the section of Church Street East between Chobham Road and the Town Gate is sought to enable improved pedestrian access to the town centre as well as the provision of a high-quality urban environment as part of the major public realm improvements to Woking Town Centre.
