Location: Junction of A30 Egham Hill with A328 and St Jude's Road
Following many years of campaigning by Royal Holloway, the Students’ Union and local residents and councillors, Surrey County Council will start work to introduce controlled pedestrian crossing facilities at the traffic lights on the crossroads of Egham Hill and St Jude’s Road. Crossings will be installed on both sides of the A30, at St Jude’s Road and on the College side of the road.
The scheme will take place in three phases, starting from Monday 20 January and running until June 2014. During the initial phase of works, temporary lane closures will be implemented. Every effort will be made to minimise disruption and, as far as possible, traffic management will only be in place during off peak hours. However, inevitably the works will cause some delays.
Royal Holloway is dedicating a stretch of land along the A30 and St Jude’s Road to enable the widening of the road, which is necessary to accommodate sight lines and pedestrian islands between crossings. If you have any feedback, please email estatesdepartmentrhul.ac.uk
Information will be updated regularly on Surrey County Council’s website. You can also contact the County Council by telephoning 0300 200 1003 or emailing highwayssurreycc.gov.uk.
Works start: Monday 20 January 2014
Hours of Work: 9.30am – 4.00pm
Outline of the works:
Phase 1) Removal of existing hedgerow and boundary fence, tree and vegetation clearance, protection of retained trees, installation of temporary boundary fence, lasting approximately 4 weeks.
Phase 2) Diversion of utility company apparatus, lasting approximately 6 weeks.
Phase 3) Carriageway widening, new footway construction, drainage works, resurfacing and traffic signal modifications, lasting approximately 14 weeks.
