TfL Ref: FOI-0144-2122
Thank you for your request of 22nd April 2021 asking for information about the width of the lanes on Hobart Place.
Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy.
Specifically you asked:
“We are investigating an incident and would like to know the width of the lanes on Hobart Place, London at location 51°29'53.3"N 0°08'50.4"W, I have attached a map and street view of the location for your perusal. We note there are 2 lanes, we would like to know the width of the right hand lane turning left towards Grosvenor Place.”
I am afraid that TfL does not hold the requested information as we are not the highway authority for this road. TfL only manages 5% of London’s roads, known as the Transport for London Road Network (TLRN) or the ‘red routes’. More information about the red routes can be found on our website here: https://tfl.gov.uk/modes/driving/red-routes The majority of roads in London - including Hobart Place - are under the management of local authorities. I would therefore suggest that you resubmit your request to the City of Westminster Council as the relevant highway authority in this instance. FOI requests to Westminster can be made via its website here:
If you are considering submitting a further FOI request to TfL please think carefully about whether the request is essential at this current time, as answering FOI requests will require the use of limited resources and the attention of staff who could be supporting other essential activity. Where requests are made, please note that our response time may be impacted by the current situation.
Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal as well as information on copyright and what to do if you would like to re-use any of the information we have disclosed.
