Cycle Superhighway 9 in Hammersmith and West Kensington

Closed 31 Oct 2017

Opened 21 Sep 2017


In close consultation with our partner Hammersmith & Fulham Council, we are proposing to transform roads in Hammersmith and West Kensington as part of proposals for Cycle Superhighway 9 (CS9).

This would change the layout of many roads along the route to make them safer and easier to use, and create a more appealing street environment for everyone to enjoy. CS9 is an important part of the Mayor’s Healthy Streets Approach, which aims to encourage walking, cycling and public transport and make London greener, healthier and more pleasant.

The proposed changes in Hammersmith include:

  • Two-way segregated cycle track on Hammersmith Road and King Street
  • Two new signal-controlled pedestrian crossings and upgrades to existing pedestrian crossings
  • Changes to bus stop locations and new bus stop bypasses for cyclists
  • Some changes to loading and parking on (or close to) the proposed CS9 alignment
  • Public space improvements along the route to create more welcoming and inclusive streets for people and communities to enjoy

Details of each section of the proposed route

To make it easier to review our proposals and see the relevent maps and illustrations, we have separated the route in Hammersmith into five sections:

Section A – Hammersmith Road

Section B – Hammersmith Gyratory

Section C – Beadon Road

Section D – King Street (East)

Section E – King Street (West)

Changes to journey times

Transforming road layouts is not without impacts, and there are difficult choices to be made in determining the layout for roads on the alignment. For example, these changes could mean that some journeys through this area may take longer.

Tables showing predicted journey time impacts on traffic, buses, cyclists and pedestrian wait times for key journeys (at selected locations) are available for the AM peak and PM peak.

Changes to parking and loading

Our proposals include changes to parking and loading bays and their hours of operation across the proposed route. During the consultation period we will contact premises that we think could be affected. If you think the proposals could affect you or your business, please contact us to let us know. We encourage you to discuss these proposals with your suppliers.
