Local residents have told us there are concerns about the speed and volume of traffic in residential areas, parking, access to public transport, and road safety for pedestrians and cyclists.

Kingston Council has listened to resident’s feedback about a range of traffic and highways issues in Malden Manor, Old Malden. As a result, we launched an area-wide project across the 'Painters Estate', Malden Manor shops, South Lane, and Sheephouse Way area.

A stakeholder management group has been formed which includes representatives from all roads in the area, local schools, local councillors and council staff.

    Dear Sir/ Madam,

    RE: HIGHWAYS UPGRADE SOUTH LANE AND SHEEPHOUSE WAY, AND CARRIAGEWAY RESURFACING OF SOUTH LANE

    Kier Highways will be undertaking highways upgrade works along South Lane and Sheephouse Way, and carriageway resurfacing works along South Lane between Amberwood Rise and Sheephouse Way on behalf of the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames.

    The works form part of the planned maintenance and highway upgrade programme for your neighbourhood.

    There has been an update to the programme due to inclement weather and other works in the borough. The revised programme is provided below:

    REVISED PROGRAMME:

    Monday 15th March (0800) to Friday 19th March (1700)

    Sheephouse Way 24/7 closure between Manor Drive North and South Lane

    (for removal of speed tables)

    Monday 22nd March (0800) to Saturday 27th March (1700)

    South Lane 24/7 closure from Amberwood Rise to Sheephouse Way

    (for resurfacing and installation of speed tables)

    Monday 29th March (0800) to Tuesday 30th March (1700)

    Sheephouse Way 24/7 closure between Manor Drive North and South Lane

    (for installation of speed tables)

    SOUTH LANE RESIDENTS – PLEASE ENSURE YOU PUT YOUR RUBBISH BIN OUT BEFORE 7AM ON THURSDAY 25TH MARCH FOR COLLECTION

    The K1 bus will be on diversion. Diversion details will be found at:

    https://tfl.gov.uk/bus/route/k1

    During the road closures, resident access will be maintained for the duration of the works except the specific area where works are occurring.

    Please observe any no parking restrictions set up on site and note any vehicles parked within the area of works will be relocated to the nearest available space using a car lifter.

    If the date and times are due to change, warning information on this matter will be given by amending signs placed in the road. All efforts will be made to ensure that noisy operations are kept to a minimum. However, noise and dust is inevitable with this type of work.

    We apologise for any inconvenience these works may cause.

    If you have any queries or require any further information please telephone the Customer Contact Centre on:

    020 8547 5002 (Mon to Fri). In case of emergency please phone 020 8547 5800.

    Resurfacing works on South Lane and replacement of width restrictions with speed tables on both South Lane and Sheephouse Way

    During January and February 2021 works will be undertaken to replace six width restrictions on South Lane and Sheephouse Way with speed tables.

    With increasing traffic levels over the years, these width restrictions no longer function as intended and can create conflict.

    The speed tables that will replace them will allow opposing vehicles to pass easily yet retain a speed calming effect.

    The ramps will feature a ‘sinusoidal’ profile, meaning they will be effective at speed calming without the ‘thud’ that can occur with a normal ‘straight’ ramp.

    The tables are also designed to accommodate the K1 bus.

    More detailed drawings are in the Document Library in the right hand column.

    A notification letter from the highways contractor is also uploaded, and the text of the letter is below.

    • Note that the K1 bus will be temporarily diverted for the duration of the works (see notice in Document Library). Details of the diversion should be on Transport for London’s website: https://tfl.gov.uk/bus/route/k1

    • Road closures will be in place, however resident access will be maintained for the duration of the works except the specific area where works are occurring.

  • Come along to our second Malden Manor Showcase and share your ideas on tackling traffic issues

    CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.
    supporting image

    When:
    Tuesday 10 December, 7.00 - 8.45pm

    Where:
    Staff Room (next to Sports Hall), Malden Manor Primary & Nursery School, New Malden, KT3 5PF. NB: Use Gainsborough Road entrance

    Overview:
    The Malden Manor Feasibility Study Showcase no. 2 is a drop-in session for the residents of the Painters Estate who could not make the first Showcase on 16 November. (If you came to the 16 November event. there's no need to come again).

    The purpose of this session is to share ideas for design possibilities to tackle the traffic issues raised by local residents relating to the volume of through-traffic using the Painters Estate.

    These design possibilities are focused on the Painters Estate, although the wider neighbourhood will be considered bearing in mind the ‘Liveable Neighbourhood’ funding bid that is being developed for submission to Transport for London.

    Objectives of the session:
    The potential design possibilities to be showcased are not final or detailed designs. The session is not a formal consultation on any of the ideas, but is part of a wider engagement and the main objectives are as follows:
    • To understand the level of ambition for change from across the community.
    • To emphasise the need for compromise in order to arrive at a solution that will tackle the problem effectively.
    • To demonstrate that the data (both resident perception survey and speed/volume) supports the need for intervention, i.e. 'people think there is a problem and the data confirms there is a problem'.
    • To test the level of support for permanent features to stop through-traffic using the Painters Estate (although measures may be temporary at first).
    • To understand the level of ambition for tackling issues related to traffic volume on South Lane and Sheephouse Way.

    In addition, the ‘Showcase’ will feature information that relates to the ‘Liveable Neighbourhoods’ bid – there will be an opportunity for the community to comment and share issues and ideas for the wider Malden Manor/Old Malden neighbourhood.

    Room layout and materials:
    Residents will be asked to sign in when they arrive.

    The design options are at a conceptual stage and any scheme will be trialled over a period of months and monitored. The room will be set up with a series of A1 boards (on easels) and posters, including:
    • Overview of the project to date - including insight into engagement activities.
    • Presentation of data collected, including perception survey and speed and volume data.
    • Plans of potential intervention locations - to include, timed and permanent closures within the Painters Estate and immediate surroundings (i.e. Sheephouse Way and South Lane).
    • Overview for how a ‘trial’ would work.
    • Presentation of some of the comments collected to date.
    To support these materials, there will be the opportunity for residents to engage with these materials – leave comments, express preference for options etc.
