Public realm improvements are due to start this Autumn in Camberley town centre.

The work is part of Surrey Heath Borough Council’s regeneration project to improve and centre. It includes enhancing Pembroke Broadway with new low energy street lighting, ‘natural green’ roofed bus shelters and modern bins to encourage recycling. Pembroke Broadway is the main arrival point for many people who use public transport.

Arnold Walk, a key pedestrian route connecting Pembroke Broadway with Princess Way, will be improved with modern lighting and colourful public art.   

Cllr Shaun MacDonald, leader, of the council, said: “The council is committed to improving Camberley town centre to make it the destination of choice within the area and these new projects will further enhance the visitor experience, improve their personal safety, help our precious environment and encourage a vibrant town centre. 

“Updates on the progress of the works will be published regularly on the council’s communication channels and we aim to keep any disruption to a minimum for road and pavement users, during the transition. 

“The project will pause as needed over the busy pre-Christmas period, so will not affect Christmas trading for our local independent and national chain businesses. 

“We hope when completed everyone will enjoy the new look.”
