20mph limit roll-out begins
The phased roll-out of a borough-wide 20mph speed limit has started in the area around Kew Green and part of Hampton.
Following a consultation last year, which had 10,000 responses, it was agreed a 20mph limit would be implemented across the borough excluding TfL red routes, as well as parts of the A305, A308 and A310.
To make the implementation of the scheme as simple as possible, the borough has been split into 25 areas which follow natural boundaries like the river, railway, excluded roads and the borough’s borders. The 20mph speed limit will go live in one area at a time.
Residents will notice changes to signage as the 20mph scheme rolls-out in their area. The Council will be taking the opportunity to declutter existing signage, such as entry plates for CPZs. Information on the go-live dates for each area will be available on Richmond Council’s website.
