Windmill Road, Hampton Hill – Traffic Management Improvement Measures

Closed 28 Jul 2023

Opened 27 Jun 2023


In Summer 2022, the Council undertook a consultation on parking layout changes along part of Windmill Road. Due to the concerns raised it was agreed to place the scheme on hold pending a decision on the future of the experimental Burtons Road traffic reduction scheme.

The Burtons Road scheme became permanent in January and so the Council now wish to progress road safety and traffic management measures for Windmill Road.

Taking into consideration comments previously made, the new proposals are intended to improve the on-street parking layout and streetscape. The measures are expected to reduce traffic volume and speed and importantly, can be delivered quicker than more restrictive traffic management proposals. The scheme will then be monitored for effectiveness.

The proposals include:  

  • Changes to the parking layout along the length of the road by relocating to alternate sides of the road to provide a natural traffic calming feature
  • Removal of speed cushions and the existing chicanes/traffic islands (priority working) to allow for up to 12 additional on-street parking spaces to be introduced along the length of the road
  • Footway bollards and new trees (subject to ground assessment) to discourage vehicles from mounting the pavement to enhance pedestrian safety in key locations
  • Additional 20 mph road markings and signs to better inform motorists of the speed limit
  • Removal of the road centre-line marking. This is a proven means of reducing vehicle speed and is being considered in other locations across the borough
  • Double yellow line restrictions at junctions to improve pedestrian safety and clearly identify areas where parking is not permitted
  • Relocation of the school flashing sign for westbound traffic (traffic travelling towards the school from direction of the High Street). This will help to provide greater awareness of the school frontage and encourage slower vehicle speed

These revised proposals address the concerns raised in the 2022 consultation, including loss of parking, lack of tree planting and that the scheme did not extend far enough (it previously only included the section of Windmill Road  from Uxbridge Road to the railway bridge).

A plan showing the measures can be found here. It is proposed to introduce the measures under an experimental Traffic Management Order (ETMO) to allow for formal consultation to take place during at least the first six months of operation. A six-month review will also allow conditions to be monitored and amendments and/or additional measures to be considered if necessary.
