One of the new, standout features of Woking’s new Victoria Square development began to take shape this week.
A key project milestone in the £540 million transformation of Woking town centre, the steel support beams designed to hold a stunning glazed canopy over a new public plaza have now been installed, paving the way for a phased completion of the entire project next year.
The team at construction and engineering leaders Sir Robert McAlpine have been working hard to advance the scheme, which is just one of a number of capital investments under way as part Woking’s wider regeneration.
First envisaged in 2006, plans for the all new Victoria Square retail, residential development and hotel, will play an integral role in Woking’s transformation. Work first started in late 2016.
“This development presents us with an unrivalled opportunity to shape a prosperous future and make our ambitions and our vision a reality. Councillor David Bittleston, leader of Woking Borough Council, said.
With a quick commute to London, good schools, leisure options, green spaces and retail and entertainment, Woking is increasingly attracting national attention and has been nominated as one of the best places in the UK to buy a home.
