Coach Parking on Kew Road
Richmond Council are conducting surveys of traffic on the Kew Road to help identify possible solutions to the issues we have raised. We expect their report soon and will continue discussion with them and the Royal Botanic Gardens,
At the suggestion of the Kew Residents Association we have worked together to prepare a new detailed report with some positive suggestions on how coach parking along Kew Road could be changed to improve safety for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians. We have sent the report to Richmond Council and to the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and are now arranging a meeting with them to see if we can agree a way forward for improvements.
You can see the report here: Coach Parking on Kew Road
Richmond Council have included in the Village Plan for Kew a commitment to review coach parking on Kew Road to improve traffic flow.
We have discussed this issue again with The Royal Botanic Gardens. Though there is no immediate solution to more appropriate parking, we hope that in the medium term improved arrangements might be agreed, possibly linked to parking for the Old Deer Park.
