1. NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Council of the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames on 8th January 2018 made the above-mentioned Orders under section 9 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, as amended by the Local Government Act 1985.

2. The general effect of the Orders, which will come into force on 22nd January 2018, will on an experimental basis provide that a two-way cycleway is introduced on the west side of Claremont Road which will;

(a) introduce a double yellow line “at any time” waiting restriction in place of existing ‘permit holders only’ parking places and single yellow line waiting restrictions (between No. 62 and Lichfield Court, Claremont Road);

(b) introduce a double yellow line “at any time” waiting restriction in place of an existing bus stop and part of an existing ‘permit holders only’ parking place (between the northern boundary of No. 33 and opposite No. 70, Claremont Road);

(c) re-locate a bus stop in place of an existing ‘shared use’ parking place (opposite No. 56, Claremont Road) and introduce a double yellow line “at any time” waiting restriction in place of the re-located bus stop (opposite Ferndown, Claremont Road);

(d) on the south-west side of Surbiton Crescent (at its junction with Uxbridge Road), lengthen an existing double yellow line “at any time” waiting restriction in place of a shortened bus stop and also introduce a no loading “at any time” restriction; and

(e) in the southern part of The Crescent, to add an exception for cycles to the existing system of one-way working.

3. The Orders provide that, subject to the provisions of section 10 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, the Council’s Director of Place, or some person authorised in that behalf by him, may, if it appears to him or that person essential in the interest of the expeditious, convenient and safe movement of traffic or for providing suitable and adequate parking facilities on the highway or for preserving or improving the amenities of the area through which any road affected by the Orders runs, modify or suspend the Orders or any provision contained therein.

4. Any person desiring to question the validity of the Orders or of any provision contained therein on the grounds that it is not within the relevant powers of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 or that any relevant requirements thereof or any relevant regulations made thereunder have not been complied with in relation to the Orders may, within six weeks from the date on which the Orders were made, make application for the purpose to the High Court.

5. The Council will be considering in due course whether the provisions of the experimental Orders should be continued in force indefinitely by means of Orders made under sections 6, 45, 46 49 and 124 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984. Any person may object to the making of an Order for the purpose of such indefinite continuation within a period of six months beginning from the date on which the experimental Order came into force, or if an experimental Order is varied or modified, beginning with the date on which such variation or modification came into force. Any objection must be in writing stating the grounds on which it is made and sent to either the Director of Place, Traffic Order Section, Guildhall 2, Kingston upon Thames, Surrey, KT1 1EU or to TMO@kingston.gov.uk (please quote KingMap0007).

6. Under the Local Government (Access to Information) Act 1985, any letter you write to the Council in response to this Notice may be made available to the press and to the public who would be entitled to take copies of it if they so wished.

Dated 12th January 2018.
