One way streets – an easy way to improve cycling.

In the City of London, virtually every one way street is two-way for cycling.

And we think it should be the same in Richmond. The addition of one-way cycling in Holly Road in Twickenham has demonstrated that we can do this in our borough, so we’ve put together a list of the roads where we think the council can implement this quickly and inexpensively.

You can see the details on this Cyclescape page, assembled by Richmond Cycling members – full of simple suggestions like “Can we cycle both ways round Richmond Green?”

Richmond Green Cyclescape proposalThe streets we’ve identified so far are:

  • Somerton Avenue @ Clifford
  • South Worple Way East End
  • Kingsway
  • Richmond Hill
  • Ormond Road
  • Paradise Road
