Thank you to all those who responded to this consultation.

You can read more about the feedback we received and the decision to proceed with the proposal here.


Further to a recent resident engagement on traffic and parking proposals for Staines Road between Fifth Cross Road and Sixth Cross Road, the Council has listened to the feedback received and is now proposing to introduce measures.

Double yellow lines at all side road junctions will be progressed under an Experimental Traffic Management Order (ETMO) where formal consultation is undertaken during the first six months of operation where residents views will be sought. The proposed single yellow lines will not be implemented pending a wider review of parking in the area.

Proposals also included a lower speed limit of 20mph for Staines Road between Fifth Cross Road and Sixth Cross Road. Research by the Transport Research Laboratory has shown that a 1mph reduction in average speed equates to a 5% reduction in accidents. The Council's detailed analysis of speeds across the borough following the introduction of 20mph limits showed reductions in speed, support for safety outcomes, and assistance with meeting the Council’s air quality objectives.   

Considering the feedback and wider data, the Council now propose to implement a 20mph speed limit on Staines Road, between Fifth Cross Road and Sixth Cross Road. This will be formally advertised as a Traffic Management Order under Section 84 of the Road Traffic Regulations Act 1984 in the Richmond and Twickenham Times on 29 June 2023.  This consultation looks to seek your views on the 20mph proposal only at this time.
