Elm Road zebra crossing

Closed 10 Mar 2024

Opened 8 Feb 2024

Overview

Our vision is to create a cleaner, greenChildren crossing on a zebra crossinger Kingston and our streets play a major role in this plan. We want everyone to feel our streets are spaces where they can breathe clean air, walk safely and feel connected to the local community

Local residents, parents and staff from St Luke’s C.E. Primary School have asked whether a zebra crossing could be installed in Elm Road, to help people cross the road safely. Funding is available from Transport for London to make this happen. We want to hear your views on a proposed new crossing and anything you think we need to consider. 

A zebra crossing in this location will improve safety for pedestrians, particularly people walking to and from the school and Elm Road Recreation Ground. The crossing will be raised to improve visibility of pedestrians and to encourage drivers to slow down as they approach the crossing.

The proposal aims to encourage active travel, by creating a safer environment for walking or cycling in the neighbourhood. This will improve health, reduce traffic congestion and pollution. 

The proposed crossing will mean removing some parking spaces in Elm Road. This is shown in the map which can also be downloaded at the bottom of this page. However, site visits by officers from our highways team have shown that there is spare parking on Elm Road.
