We have been appointed to deliver the main construction works to transform the Kingsway area, incorporating new public areas, landscaped park land, cycle tracks and a two-way single lane vehicle route along with the creation of wider pedestrian walkways.
The proposals seek to create a more attractive environment for people to live, work and visit. Turning the Kingsway from a largely car dominated environment in to a more people friendly space which encourages walking and cycling as well as creating opportunities for people to sit and relax.
Our contract includes realigning the existing carriageway footprint along the Kingsway and Orchard Street to reinstate two-way traffic flow, with one lane in each direction. The resultant change in traffic flow and overall reduction in carriageway will create a green, attractive and usable space to encourage pedestrian footfall. Works include carriageway reconstruction, drainage and utilities, public realm works including high quality paving and street furniture, the installation of safe pedestrian crossings and soft landscaping works.
