Cycle Superhighway 9 in Chiswick and Brentford town centre

Closed 31 Oct 2017

Opened 21 Sep 2017

Overview

In close consultation with our partners the London Borough of Hounslow and Hammersmith & Fulham Council, we are proposing to transform roads in Hammersmith, Chiswick and Brentford town centre as part of Cycle Superhighway 9 (CS9). 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 Chiswick and Brentford include:

  • Two-way segregated cycle track on the south side of Chiswick High Road from Goldhawk Road to Heathfield Terrace
  • Three new signal-controlled pedestrian crossings and upgrades to 19 existing pedestrian crossings
  • Reducing through traffic and rat-running in residential roads by restricting access to the South Circular from Wellesley Road and Stile Hall Gardens for motor vehicles, making this a more appealing place to walk and cycle 
  • ‘Stepped’ cycle tracks (at a lower height than the footway) in each direction on Brentford High Street; an eastbound stepped track on Kew Bridge Road, and a westbound cycle path through Waterman’s Park
  • Changes to bus stop locations and new bus stop bypasses for cyclists
  • Some changes to parking and loading on (or close to) the proposed CS9 alignment

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 Chiswick and Brentford town centre into five sections:

Section F - Chiswick High Road

Section G - Heathfield Terrace / Wellesley Road

Section H - South Circular Road (Kew Bridge Station)

Section I - Kew Bridge Road / Waterman’s Park / Brentford High Street (East)

Section J - Brentford High Street (West)

We have also outlined proposals for a possible future consultation on CS9 from Brentford town centre to Hounslow town centre:

Section K - Brentford town centre to Hounslow town centre

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.
