Rickety roads in all Richmond neighbourhoods in line for repairs
Richmond Council has allocated £52,000 to each of the 14 villages in the borough to repair roads.
More than 1,800 Richmond people participated in the consultation to nominate roads in their area needing repair; 33 roads were chosen.
The roads to be repaired using money from the road improvement fund include Hampton Road, Twickenham, Princes Road, Teddington, Strawberry Hill Road and Salisbury Road, Richmond, and Lower Teddington Road, Hampton Wick.
Submissions were reviewed between January and March and announced on April 1.
Council cabinet member for highways Councillor Chris Harrison said: “I am delighted to announce the roads and pavements to be repaired this year through the council’s innovative roads and pavements programme – which is bigger and better than ever.
“It’s a delight to see so many residents respond to the council’s consultation, it shows how involved residents want to be within their villages.”
Richmond was also given £1.6m from Government grants and Transport for London to repair roads - the third-highest awarded of all London boroughs. Repairs are expected to be made this summer.
