Findings from the consultation
While opinion was split among the nearly 10,000 respondents on whether to implement our 20mph proposal in its original form (47.9 per cent in favour and 49.7 per cent against), 52 per cent of respondents agreed that a 20mph limit should reduce the number and severity of road accidents.
The consultation also found that vulnerable road users were overwhelmingly supportive of the proposals with 65 per cent of under 19s and 60 per cent of over 75s supporting the proposals.

- Read the Council’s announcement on the consultation results
Taking the views of residents into account, our amended proposal includes new changes, including:
- A revision of the proposed 20mph speed limit on the A308 between Kingston and Hampton, including Hampton Court Road, Upper Sunbury Road and Lower Sunbury Road (excluding Thames Street). The stretch (excluding Thames Street) will now be 30mph
- Initial exclusion of the A310 between Kingston Bridge roundabout and Twickenham. This will be subject to a study aimed at introducing collision and speed reduction measures and will also determine whether to implement 20mph on the A310
- Initial exclusion of part of the A305 between Apex Corner roundabout and Twickenham town centre. This will also be subject to a study aimed at introducing collision and speed reduction measure and will determine whether to implement 20mph on this section of the A305
We will also commission an independent air quality assessment around the scheme measuring key baseline readings around the likes of NO2 and PM10 emissions.
