A constituent reports that cycling enhancements to three crossings of the planned Quietway 21 (Q21) in Ham, between Richmond Park and Teddington Lock, were carried out in 2019, but no further infrastructure improvements have happened. Sections of Q21 are now shown on the Transport for London Cycle map as a disconnected route. When will a safe Quietway route that links these sections into a complete route be delivered?

Transport for London (TfL) is working the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames to ensure that the entire route between Richmond Park and Teddington Lock meets Cycleway standards, which were defined by the cycling quality criteria introduced in 2019.

The London Borough of Richmond upon Thames is leading on the delivery of this route, including enhancements to the section along Ham Gate Avenue, Ham Common and Lock Road, designs for which are currently in progress. TfL expects construction to begin later this summer.

Once construction is complete and wayfinding is in place, the Cycleway will provide a continuous connection through Ham between Richmond Park and Teddington Lock.
