Council Announces Opening Date of Elm Bridge

22nd September 2011

Council Announces Opening Date of Elm Bridge Woking Borough Council and its contractor, VolkerFitzpatrick, have announced that Elm Bridge (also known as Kingfield Road Bridge) will reopen by Wednesday 19 October 2011.

The new bridge, which links Elm Bridge Lane with Kingfield Road, was closed as part of the Hoe Valley Scheme to allow the old Victorian structure to be demolished and a new bridge to be constructed.

The new bridge is significantly wider providing sufficient space for improved pedestrian footpaths, a cycle path and wider road carriageways to increase safety for all users of the bridge. Drivers will also see improvements to the junction between Kingfield Road and Westfield Avenue which will allow better traffic flow.

Elm Bridge is a crucial feature of the Hoe Valley flood protection scheme, as it has a much wider mouth to cope better with the river flow in the event of heavy rainfall. Along with the other flood structures in the scheme, it will take hundreds of Kingfield homes out of the flood plain and significantly improve this area of the Borough.

Mark Rolt, Woking Borough Council’s Strategic Director, said: “We are pleased to announce that Elm Bridge will reopen to the public by the 19 October 2011. We recognise that the closure has caused major disruption while these essential works have been carried out and would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding during the construction.”
