Queueing for the park

Ham Gate Avenue starts off prettily enough as it leave the Richmond road and heads for Richmond Park. There are some tidy cottages, Ormeley Lodge and Ham Common Woods is close to the road on both sides.

The blight starts as you get close to Ham Gate as half the road is then occupied by cars abandoned while their owners walk in the park. This queue is depressingly ugly and makes the junction with Church Road less safe for all users, including pedestrians.

The solution is obvious. Ham Gate Avenue should be a single-track road in one direction only and with no parking allowed. The rest of the road can then be given to cyclists, leaving the path to pedestrians.
