The Vale, Feltham - proposed no-entry from Staines Road or Hounslow Road

Closes 13 Dec 2021

Opened 15 Nov 2021

Overview

We would like your views on proposed changes to The Vale to address the issue of motor vehicles using it as a through route.

The council has been informed by residents of The Vale that a large number of vehicles use the road as a through route to avoid waiting at the traffic signals at the Staines Road / Hounslow Road junction.

Traffic surveys commissioned by the council show that northbound and southbound traffic on The Vale is 40% and 55% higher in the peak hour than the 7am – 7pm average, respectively, suggesting The Vale is used as a through route by traffic in the peak hour.

To address this issue, the council is consulting with residents on three options:

Option 1 – Road closure at the junction between The Vale and Staines Road. Motor vehicles would only be permitted to enter and exit The Vale from Hounslow Road.

Option 2 – Road closure at the junction between The Vale and Hounslow Road. Motor vehicles would only be permitted to enter and exit The Vale from Staines Road.

Option 3 – Do nothing. No road closure at either Staines Road or Hounslow Road. No additional restrictions on motor vehicles accessing The Vale will be implemented.

The proposals in options 1 and 2 can be viewed via the links in the “Related” section at the bottom of this page.

If supported, a new shared use footway will be constructed to prevent entry into and out of The Vale by motor vehicles, from either Staines Road or Hounslow Road.
