In 2014, Kingston upon Thames was one of just three boroughs that won a bid for a share of £100 million from the Mayor of London and Transport for London 'Mini-Holland' programme to encourage more people to cycle.
With its allocation of over £30 million, the Council plans to relieve the pressure of a growing population on the borough’s transport network by transforming cycling facilities whilst improving road safety and enhancing Kingston’s public spaces.
Kingston’s Mini-Holland work is taking place under the ‘Go Cycle' programme’.
Find out about the innovative and exciting ideas that will benefit those who cycle, as well as the wider community, with plans for key connections across the borough here
Key concepts for the Go Cycle programme are:
The main proposals include:
developing an attractive new public plaza with cycling hub/s outside Kingston train station with improved access and crossings, providing a significantly enhanced arrival experience to Kingston.
enhancing Kingston’s riverfront with a Riverside Boardway that will improve access and facilities for the local community and visitors
opening a large, bio diverse strip of private land to create a direct, non-motorised link from New Malden to Raynes Park
improving the Kingston town centre ring road to make it a safer and more attractive gateway to Kingston
improving key links connecting Kingston, Surbiton, New Malden, Kingston Vale and Tolworth
