What we proposed?

We want to provide a formal place for cyclists and pedestrians (including pupils at Isleworth and Syon School) to cross the A4 Great West Road. We believe that the creation of a new signal controlled crossing point near Ridgeway Road would enable people to access bus stops, parks and other local amenities safely.  

To do this, we proposed creating a staggered toucan crossing; a type of crossing that can be used by both pedestrians and cyclists.

The proposed changes included the following:

  • Widen the carriageway on the north side to maintain the 3-lane configuration (in order to create a safe waiting area in the middle of the carriageway)
  • Widen the central reservation by 2 metres to create a safe waiting area
  • Move the eastbound bus stop (located on the northern side of the A4) by 5.5 metres
  • Create a shared surface for pedestrians and cyclists around nearby bus stops and the crossing point. Tactile paving and signing would be used to indicate that the area is shared by pedestrians and cyclists
  • Move and replant existing trees and/or plant new ones (resulting in no overall loss to the number of trees in place)
  • Remove one parking bay located outside 719 and 721 Great West Road.
