We are seeking views on proposals for the East-West Cycle Superhighway between Paddington to Acton, connecting to the section currently under construction from Tower Hill through central London to Paddington. This would provide a clearer and safer route for cyclists through west London, separated from other vehicles.
The proposals are made up of two schemes:
The first is a continuous, segregated route from Paddington to Wood Lane via the Westway flyover, connecting to the route between Tower Hill and Lancaster Gate currently under construction. You can find detailed information and have your say below.
The second scheme would improve existing cycling facilities betweem Wood Lane and North Acton. It would connect to the first scheme to form a continuous route. You can find detailed information and have your say below.

What are we proposing?
Cycling is now a major mode of transport in London. In 2014 645,000 journeys a day were made by bike, a 10 per cent increase from 2013. Cycling during the morning rush hour in London has more than trebled since 2000 (*source: Travel in London, Report 8).
The proposals aim to encourage large numbers of people who would like to cycle, but currently feel unable to do so. Data from existing Cycle Superhighways suggests the new route would also draw cyclists away from other routes in central London that are less suitable for them.
We will be holding public events at which TfL and borough staff involved in the project will be available to answer your questions:
