Possible traffic delays

Work continues to complete the remaining parts of this project although the vast majority of these are located away from the main A244 which will result in minimal or no impact to road users. There will be occasions where there will be a need to install traffic management on the main A244 Walton Bridge Road to undertake certain elements of the work and details will be provided on this webpage and displayed on signs on site in advance.

9 May 2014

Eastbound (towards Walton) lane closure at the junction of the A244 Bridge Street and Oatlands Drive closing the left turn lane into Bridge Street/Hepworth Way between 8:00pm on Friday 9 May and 6:00am on Saturday 10 May to facilitate the resurfacing of the existing footway.

River navigation

With the completion of the demolition of the two old bridges and the removal of all of the structural piles from the River Thames, for the first time since before 1750 this section of the river is now completely unobstructed for river users and has opened up new views of the river.

Community meeting

Information from the previous meeting that took place on 16 April 2014 is attached through the Community Meeting link below.

The WBG feel this is a good thing for Walton, the bridge is an important transport link bringing visitors, employees, deliveries to the great retail and dining offer Walton now has.

- businesses feel it is long awaited, although wary of disruption such a major project could bring.  In practice there should be minimal disruption as the current bridge will be in place till the new one opens in 2013.We believe that the loyal customers of Walton will continue to support local businesses whilst facing any potential disruption however small.

- pre workshave been managed well so no reason to believe that won’t also be the case with the main works.  It is vital to maintaining free flow of traffic throughout the area.

- disruption to recreational area most noticeable but we will reap the benefits on completion 

WBG will keep members up to date and feedback any concerns to SCC as works progress
ensuring Walton continues to grow and prosper for the duration of the project
