RBK Streetspace Projects


Albert Road, Kingston

  • from 07 September 2020
  • Albert Road is regularly used as a cut-through by motorists trying to avoid the main road junction with Cambridge Road. A planter will be installed at the Albert Road/Hawks Road junction to make this residential road safer by preventing vehicle access. To achieve this, a section of Albert Road’s one-way system will be reversed (southbound) and alterations will be made to the cycle lane (northbound).

Lower Ham Road, Kingston

  • from 07 September 2020
  • Paths and roads are narrow in this area and traffic congestion is common. A planter will be installed on Lower Ham Road (between Woodside Road and Bank Lane) to prevent through-traffic and minimise vehicles using the road. There will be access for vehicles to properties and businesses in one direction.

King Charles Road, Surbiton

  • from 14 September 2020
  • A barrier will be installed on King Charles Road (between Hollyfield Road and Beaconsfield Road) to prevent the road being used as a through-route for motor traffic, but remaining open to cycles.
