Tunsgate improvements to complete by end of June

Published at 5:48pm 13th June 2018.

Work on the footpaths and road behind Guildford's iconic Tunsgate Arch will be finished by the end of June, enhancing the town's appeal as one of the key shopping locations and visitor destinations in the south-east.

Cllr Matt Furniss, Lead Councillor for Infrastructure and Governance, said: "Following the opening of the new Tunsgate Quarter it's great to see work almost finished to improve the surrounding area. We want a vibrant and thriving town centre and this is just one part of our vision to regenerate and improve what Guildford has to offer.

"The improvements will create a larger attractive pedestrianised area close to Tunsgate and the Castle. This makes it easier to walk around this historic part of our town and provides a more cosmopolitan feel with opportunity for al fresco dining. Replacing the Tunsgate footpaths with Yorkstone paving and granite kerbs and renewing the road surface with granite setts has visually uplifted the whole area."

We funded the project in partnership with Surrey County Council, which has responsibility for roads. Surrey County Council appointed Kier as their main contractor following their successful relaying of the granite setts in the High Street.
