Kingston's Low Traffic Neighbourhoods

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

At Kingston Council we are committed to tackling climate change, improving air quality and enabling our residents and visitors to use sustainable travel options.

Our vision is to create a ‘cleaner, greener Kingston’ and our streets play a major role in this plan. We want our roads to be pleasant spaces where we can breathe clean air, walk around safely and feel connected to our community.

Work is has taken place on a number of important projects to help achieve this including: improving our cycling infrastructure and introducing more electric vehicle charging points to reduce reliance on high polluting vehicles.

Our low traffic neighbourhood trials were introduced to help tackle through-traffic on busy residential roads to create safer, quieter spaces for pedestrians and cyclists.

  • Kingston Town - Albert Road - KingMap0045 (launched 7 September 2020)

  • Kingston Town - Lower Ham Road - TMO-P302 (launched 7 September 2020)

  • Surbiton - King Charles Road - TMO-P306 (launched 14 September 2020)

These schemes were introduced on a trial basis using Experimental Traffic Orders for up to 18 months with consultation taking place for the first six months of the schemes.

What happens next?

Following initial discussions with elected Ward Councillors and Neighbourhood Committee Chairs, the Surbiton Neighbourhood Committee will officially consider King Charles Road LTN on 22 July 2021 and the Kingston Town Neighbourhood Committee will consider reports and recommendations for Albert Road and Lower Ham Road LTNs on 27 July 2021.
