We will be installing floor vinyls and social distancing signage across the town centre to help signpost areas for customers to queue and access premises. Narrow alleyways will be signed as 'one-way' to assist with social distancing.
We're pleased that the Ancient Market Place will see a phased re-opening for hot food traders in the coming weeks. Social distancing measures and signage will remain in place and we're working with traders to make sure they comply with new health and safety guidance.

While we welcome cyclists to the town centre, we encourage you to walk through the town to ensure all visitors are able to use the space with plenty of room.
A number of initial highway changes have been implemented by Kingston Council at the following locations to help maintain social distancing at busy areas and ‘pinch points’ around the town centre:
• Eden Street - one way for all traffic. Click here for more details
• Clarence Street - Wilko to Kingston Railway Station
• Fairfield North - from the pedestrian crossing east of bus garage to Wheatfield Way
• Wheatfield Way - northbound side from College Roundabout to Ashdown Road
• Kingston Bridge
Click here for further details. We will continue to review these changes and also ensure the rest of the highway network supports the safer re-opening of Kingston.
