The £2.3 million revamp of Hampton Hill High Street has been completed.

As part of the council’s Uplift programme, and with funding from the Greater London Authority, footways on the street have been renewed, the road has been resurfaced, street lighting has been upgraded, street furniture added, trees have been replaced and cycle parking increased.

To mark the occasion, a commemorative plaque has been installed in the paving on the High Street.

Councillor Pamela Fleming, Richmond Council cabinet member for environment, business and community, said: “We have listened and worked with resident and business groups.

“We have invested a substantial amount of money into making vital improvements to the roads, the pavements, the trees and the street furniture.

“To help with traffic flow in the area, we have also improved the signalling and crossing arrangements.”
