Construction begins on Dukes Court

Construction on our Dukes Court project, which includes creating a contemporary public plaza, highway improvements and commercial amenities transforming part of Woking town centre’s business district is underway.

Central to the project is a new landscaped pedestrianised public plaza along Duke Street, creating a pleasant open space for tenants of Dukes Court and the public.

There will be a new restaurant and huge living ‘green’ wall that will improve air quality around the site, new signage and pedestrian routes.
