Reducing traffic and improving safety in your area

We would like to get your views on improving safety in your area

We’re proposing to make some changes to reduce through-traffic in your area, reduce road danger, improve the environment and make your neighbourhood more pleasant.

What are the proposed changes?

We’re proposing changes on Burlington Road, Rigault Road, Buer Road and Elysium Street and these are shown in detail on the plan linked below.

We’d like to:

  • Close Burlington Road at the junction with Rigault Road. There will still be access for emergency vehicles
  • Close Elysium Street at its junction with New King’s Road to reduce cycle accidents
  • Remove the firegate at Rigault Road to improve accessibility - We need to do this because of the closure of the Burlington Road and Rigault Road junction and will allow vehicles access from Burlington Place into Rigault Road to its junction with Fulham High Street
  • Make the section of Burlington Road south of Rigault Road one way southbound
  • Construct a raised table outside no.1 Jubilee Terrace to reduce speed and improve safety approaching the primary school
  • Install road humps and a raised table on Buer Road to reduce vehicle speeds
  • Create one extra parking space in Burlington Road
  • Convert some single yellow lines to double yellow lines on Burlington Road.

What could we do to test this out?

We would make the changes on Burlington Road by introducing an experimental traffic order and then monitoring the results for approximately six-months. We will then ask you for your views again before deciding whether to make these changes permanent.

We’ll only go ahead with the proposals if the majority of respondents support it, so please let us have your views.
