Local council extends consultation on cycling quietway

Richmond council has extended the deadline for the public airing their views on the proposed new cycle routes through Richmond and Teddington in a bid to reduce noise.

The route comes from the neighbouring borough of Wandsworth, across Richmond Park to the Ham Gate, then through Ham and Teddington crossing the river at Teddington Lock and finishing at Bushy Park.

This Quietway is part of a planned network of high-quality, well-signed cycle routes throughout London, mostly using less-trafficked streets. The Quietway is primarily aimed at new cyclists, and those who would prefer to cycle on quieter routes at a gentler pace.

Cllr Peter Buckwell, Richmond Council’s Cabinet Member for Highways and Streetscene, said:

“These are significant plans for cyclists across the borough and they will affect many of our residents which is why we want as many people as possible to have their say. We are a listening Council and we want our residents to study these plans and tell us what they think.

“We are always looking at new ways to make cycling in Richmond even easier and accessible. Our residents are among the healthiest in the country and we have more cyclists in Richmond than any other Greater London borough – so we know how important these proposals will be to residents.”
