Why We Are Consulting
We have been made aware that vehicles using the turning facility at this junction are sometimes forced to over-run the kerb, entering the cycle lane that is adjacent to the road here. There have also been collisions with the kerb build-out immediately west of the junction. The London Borough of Richmond upon Thames and TfL have worked on a potential solution to this issue and are now seeking the views of the local community.
We propose to cut the kerb back between the bus stop and the junction with Elsinore Way, to allow more room for turning vehicles, please click here to view plan.
We will replace the cycle lane that runs along the south side of the A316 with a shared cycle/pedestrian space in the area of this junction. Signs will warn cyclists as they approach the junction and remind them of the care needed in the shared area. We plan a full review of cycling routes along the A316 corridor later in 2013, and will be inviting views on this in due course.
Depending on the views expressed during this consultation exercise, we will carry out the work during summer 2013.
Please let us have your view by completing the online consultation below by 21 June 2013.
