Elsynge Road Traffic Management Consultation

Closed 16 Jun 2022

Opened 16 Dec 2021


Following the receipt of a petition from residents of Elsynge Road expressing concerns over perceived dangerous speeding problems on this road, banned left turn interventions to reduce through traffic on Elsynge Road and Spencer Road during peak hours were agreed to be trialled after meetings between residents and Ward Councillors.

A plan of the proposed left turn bans can be seen here

What happens next 

A trial consisting of a morning peak hour (7-10am) Monday to Friday left turn ban trial from the A3 Marcilly Road into Elsynge Road and an afternoon peak hour (4-7pm) Monday to Friday left turn ban trial from St. John’s Hill into Spencer Road has now been approved.    

The trial period will commence on 16th December for a minimum period of 6 months (with scope to extend up to 18 months), to enable the Council to gather public feedback and monitor the impact on adjacent residential roads. 

At the end of the trial period, traffic data and consultation feedback will be fully considered before a final decision is made on whether this experimental scheme should be made permanent, dropped or amended. 

Have your say 

The Council is keen to hear the views of local residents and businesses throughout the trial period, to ensure that all available information has been considered before a final decision is made. Please submit your views using the online survey below.  

If you require a paper copy of the survey or a different language/format, please contact Mena Bhatia on 020 8487 5338, or email TrafficAndEngineering@richmondandwandsworth.gov.uk
