Richmond Park to reopen to traffic

Park Traffic 200813

As Royal Parks launch their 6 month trial to reduce cut-through motor traffic and create new car-free spaces in Richmond Park, Richmond Council will be closely monitoring the impacts on nearby communities – including congestion and air quality.

A weekday trial at Richmond Park will restrict all through-traffic between Broomfield Hill Car Park and Robin Hood Car Park and close the vehicle link between Sheen Gate and Sheen Cross.

Additionally, at weekends, the trial will restrict all cut-through traffic between Roehampton, Sheen and Richmond Gates, ensuring this part of the park is a more enjoyable space for all park visitors.

To stay informed of the process and progress of the trials, people are encouraged to sign up to the Movement Strategy mailing list: www.royalparks.org.uk/movement.
