Issued By: Andrew Darvill Assistant Director, Traffic and Transport
1.The Council of the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames HEREBY GIVES NOTICE that they have made a temporary Order, the effect of which will be to introduce a road closure in part of Church Road, Ham.
2.The length of Church Road affected by the order passes through an area where common toads are known to cross the carriageway during their annual migration from hibernation to breeding areas. The road closure is intended to allow the toads to cross the carriageway unharmed and to eliminate the risk of accidents if drivers were to be distracted by the presence of these creatures in their path.
3.Whilst Church Lane, Ham is closed an alternative route for northbound traffic will be via Church Road, Upper Ham Road, and Ham Gate Avenue. An alternative route for southbound traffic will be as above but in the reverse direction.
4.The order will come into effect on 12 March 2012 and will remain in force until 2 April 2012
5.The prohibitions apply only during such time and to such extent as indicated by prescribed traffic signs.
6.Nothing in the Order applies to:
(a) any vehicle requiring access to or from “Wilmer House”, Church Road from or in the direction of Latchmere Lane
(b) any vehicle being in connection with the execution of the said works or any public service or utility vehicle;
(c) anything done with the permission or at the direction of a police officer in uniform or a traffic warden; or
(d) emergency service vehicles, subject to site conditions at the time of any emergency.
