Hounslow Council have put together a consultation to respond to the concerns they received about the transport problems in the Dukes Meadows area.

A spokesperson for the Council said, "We consulted with a number of local groups and park users for their views and suggestions to help improve the area. Based on the proposals set out from the main consultation brochure, we have summarised the suggested improvements from people who responded."

The recommendations are:

  • The installation of a pedestrian bridge under Barnes Railway bridge;
  • Gating Riverside Drive to prevent through vehicular traffic to Dan Mason Drive, which will improve conditions for walkers and cyclists in this part of the park;
  • The removal of vegetation alongside some roads to improve sight lines;
  • Replacing the mini-roundabout at the Staveley Road Junction with a new ‘raised table’ to help pedestrians cross;
  • The provision of a shared use pavement along Riverside Drive for walkers and cyclists;
  • Proposals to formalise and better regulate parking (including enforcement where appropriate) to prevent anti-social parking and protect grass verges.

The council wants to hear your views about these proposals via email to transportplanning@hounslow.gov.uk including ‘Dukes Meadows’ in the subject line.

If you are responding to an individual proposal, please make sure you make a reference to this in your email.

The deadline date for all comments is Friday 12th June 2009.

A full copy of the draft strategy, and accompanying maps, is also available for download here.
