Residents living in Hampton Hill will be invited to review the council's proposals to trial one way systems to lessen traffic during peak times.

The invitation is open until July 26 and is an opportunity to review the councils plans which include closures from Links View Road to Burtons Road junction.

Councillor Alexander Ehmann, Chair of Richmond Council’s Transport and Air Quality Committee said: “After receiving a petition about traffic in and around Burton Road the Council undertook traffic surveys which show over 500 vehicles are using the roads during peak time – significantly higher than what we would expect for roads of this nature.”

Other parts of the proposal include ‘right turn’ only signs for all vehicles travelling along Burtons Road from Wellington Road into Links View Road.

Vehicles travelling east towards Wellington Road into Albert Road will also have ‘right turn’ only signs.

‘No entry’ signs will be displayed for eastbound vehicles outside numbers 81-83 Burtons Road which means traffic would only be able to travel in a westerly direction and road closures will take place and will affect traffic in both directions mid-way between Lindsay Road and Cranmer Road.

Cllr Alexander Ehmann continued: “Council officers have met with residents following the survey and subsequent to that have put forward these proposals which would be introduced on a trial basis”.

The council believes the proposals are likely to have a positive impact for both pedestrians and cyclists due to reduced traffic volumes in the area.
