Speed reduction measures in Riverside Drive and Dukes Avenue, Ham

Closed 29 Jun 2023

Opened 24 May 2023


The Council is keen to understand the views of residents about traffic and speed conditions in Riverside Drive and Dukes Avenue.

These roads have been highlighted as having unacceptable average speeds for a 20mph speed limit. In light of this, the Council requested Police speed enforcement, which has been carried out on a number of occasions. Unfortunately the Police recorded high levels of non-compliance. In order to address these concerns, the Council has successfully secured funding from Transport for London for speed intervention measures.

The proposed measures are outlined below:

  • Marked parking bays and double yellow line restrictions to create visual narrowing and a chicane effect along the length of road
  • Four new pedestrian traffic islands at key points
  • Enhanced yellow line markings around junctions and other key areas of concern
  • Enhanced 20 mph signage and road markings
  • Four new locations for speed indicator flashing signs

Following the introduction of these measures, further speed surveys would be undertaken to determine if further measures may be required.

You can view drawings of the proposed measures below and at Ham Library during opening hours.
