Drivers have been warned to expect delays as part of a major town centre road is closed for six weeks. A section of Victoria Way in Woking will be shut from Monday, July 8 while a scaffold gantry is dismantled.

One lane of the southbound carriageway will be closed between the main car park exit and the junction with High Street. While it will take up to six weeks to do what is needed, the road will not be closed for the entirety of this time.

Instead the work will be conducted between 7.30am to 10pm during the first half of the works, followed by night shifts for the remaining section. The closure means that during this period delays are likely on roads in the around the town centre.

The weather could also affect the works as in the event of bad weather, lifting operations will not go ahead as planned and works will be rescheduled. The works are due to be finished by mid August.

Earlier in June, Victoria Way was closed in both directions to enable the removal of materials and equipment from the Victoria Place site by crane. A spokesperson for Woking Borough Council said that it would like to thank local businesses, road users and residents for their patience during these necessary works.
