Wellington Road Consultation

Closed 21 Nov 2022

Opened 31 Oct 2022

Overview

Wellington Road, Twickenham - Proposed improvements to the pedestrian island on Wellington Road by the railway footpath/Clonmel Road.

The Council is inviting comments on a proposal to improve the existing pedestrian island on Wellington Road by the railway footpath/Clonmel Road. 

A pedestrian crossing audit was undertaken by the Council just before Covid-19 which looked at existing crossing facilities in the Richmond borough and identified issues.

The island on Wellington Road by the railway footpath/Clonmel Road was identified as being substandard in width and a well-used crossing point on route to local schools.  

It is planned to rebuild this island to a more suitable width of two metres and repave the footways for a short distance either side as there are broken slabs there currently.  The road markings would be realigned accordingly.

A slightly wider island may encourage slower speed through this section; therefore, we would consider improving the 20 signage on both sides of the island as part of this proposal.

These proposals will not have any impact on the existing control parking zone [CPZ] bays.

The works consist of:

  • Reconstructing the refuge islands to 2m width
  • Repave the footways for a short distance on either side
  • Realign the road markings

A plan of the proposed changes is shown here
