The High Street, Princess Way and Knoll Walk improvement works started on 6 January 2020.
We will keep you updated on the project’s phases and what is coming up next in these monthly updates. You can also email your queries to Camberley.firstname.lastname@example.org
The High Street is open for Business
The High Street is fully open for business throughout the project and pedestrians have access to all the shops and businesses.
Service vehicles, residents’ vehicles and emergency services also have access to the High Street and Princess Way.
Why is the project taking a year?
We have received a number of queries asking why the project is taking a year. The dates published reflect the overall timescales including allowance for delays. The works are extensive and involve the entire carriageway and pavements being rebuilt along with the installation of new street furniture, planting and lighting.
The project is phased into five sections and the roads and walkways will close and re-open at different times within the project. The timescales that we have announced also recognise that we are reliant on statutory services such as telecommunications moving their services on time and the risks of delays.
The contractors are also restricted in the hours that they can operate as the work is noisy and in the open air, we have to be mindful of that impact on residents in the area.
The Council is working very hard to minimise disruption to businesses and residents and to promote the town centre during this period, together with Collectively Camberley and The Square.
We have introduced a trial of free one-hour parking in Knoll Road multi-storey and we are working with businesses on their own parking and servicing needs to minimise disruption.
