The initial phase includes the provision of a new road from Beaver Road to the A28 Chart Road, the introduction of a tree lined street and the creation of a new public square adjacent to the Victoria Road Primary school.
The Victoria Way Initial Phase scheme links the A2042 Romney Marsh Road to the A28 Chart Road through a combination of improvements and reconditioning works to the existing Victoria Road and Leacon Road coupled with the construction of a 0.6km length of new single carriageway on an embankment up to 2.2m in height.
Furthermore, the proposals included the creation of a new public square adjacent to the Victoria Road Primary school incorporating high quality materials and artwork features.
The new Victoria Way will allow the town to grow and develop to the south of the town centre and railway line and provide opportunities for new developments including shops, restaurants and cafes and new homes. Victoria Way is being delivered in phases as development along the route takes place.
The creation of a public space area (Victoria Square) was carried out using high quality material products, decorative lighting, bespoke steel mesh boundary hoardings up to 4m in height, seating and landscape areas and works to facilitate a bespoke pavilion type structure. Natural stone paving within areas of the carriageway (central/channels) was included, and we as the full depth reconstruction of Victoria Road, new road lighting throughout, and replacement lighting in Leacon Road.
