Question

While welcoming the pedestrian facilities at the junction of the Upper Richmond Road and Rocks Lane / Roehampton Lane, please would you explain what consultation took place with the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames about the changes to the junction and in particular the restriction on the direct right turn from Rocks Lane into the Upper Richmond Road. The signage is particularly poor. Is this a trial scheme, and if so please may I have details of its length and how it is being evaluated?

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The initial consultation on this scheme took place in July 2003 when the London Boroughs of Richmond and Wandsworth, the Metropolitan Police and London Buses were sent details of the proposal. The London Borough of Richmond responded with comments on 8th August 2003. Following the consultation period the design was amended and the consultees were sent revised details on 13 October 2003. The scheme is not a "trial" but will be closely monitored in operation for a period of up to twelve months and any public concerns will be considered as part of the review process. There are three signs in Rocks Lane which give drivers warning and/or directions of the changed arrangements at the junction.
