Mount Pleasant Road Tunbridge Wells

Our project will improve cycle facilities, reduce the road width and create more pedestrian space with a new public square.

We will improve pedestrian access around the Civic Centre complex on Mount Pleasant Road, from Monson Road to Church Road.

The project will:

  • reduce the width of the road
  • install pedestrian paving across Mount Pleasant Road, Monson Road and York Road
  • create a public square for use on occasions such as Remembrance Sunday
  • improve public seating and cycle facilities.

The project will have 6 phases and we expect to finish on 21 September 2019.

Phase 1

28 January – 18 March 2019

We will close Civic Way as we temporarily remove parking bays. We will also use temporary traffic lights for 1 night as we remove the pedestrian island on Monson Road, by the Civic Way exit.

Phases 2 - 6

We will release more details spring 2019.

We support Tunbridge Wells Borough Council’s Five Year Plan and its commitment to improve public spaces in the town centre.

Our project should reduce traffic through Mount Pleasant Road and give priority to pedestrians, cyclists and public transport.

28 January 2019 - We started work.
