Camberley High Street, Princess Way and Knoll Walk improvement works update 

Works to start on Princess Way carriageway and junction on Monday 4 May 2020.

The improvement works are taking place in five phases and the first two phases are now under construction. These areas are the middle section of the High Street and the pedestrian section of Princess Way. The old road and pavement surfaces have been removed, the new granite kerbs are being laid and the road and pavement areas will have new paving and tarmac laid shortly.

Phase three – which is the carriageway on Princess Way and the junction to the High Street, has been brought forward.  Works will start on this section on Monday 4 May 2020.

This phase is key as it affects the access to a service yard for The Square shopping centre.  As most of the shops are currently shut the project team have made the decision that completing most of this phase now will help the retailers if the current COVID-19 lock-down restrictions are lifted before July.  The shops will then have minimal impact on their deliveries.

This work will last initially for three weeks and temporary surfacing will be laid until the final materials are delivered in July. We are liaising with The Square’s management team and the essential retailers that are still trading to make sure their deliveries are maintained.

Dyer and Butler will also increase the width of the footpaths surrounding the works on the High Street to enable social distancing for pedestrians.  They will also review the current footpath in Princess Way.
