Cycle routes like Cycleway 9 help to support the Mayor’s Transport Strategy and Healthy Streets approach by encouraging walking, cycling and using public transport.
The proposed changes between Kensington Olympia and Brentford town centre include:
• A two-way segregated cycle track on Hammersmith Road, King Street and Chiswick High Road
• Five new signal-controlled pedestrian crossings and more than 20 upgraded 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 these streets more appealing places to walk and cycle
• Stepped cycle tracks (at a lower height than the footway) in each direction on Brentford High Street; eastbound stepped track on Kew Bridge Road, westbound cycle path through Waterman’s Park
• Changes to bus stop locations and layouts, including new bus stop bypasses for cyclists
• Changes to parking and loading bays and hours of operation
This section of Cycleway 9 would provide a continuous, largely-segregated route between Kensington Olympia and Brentford town centre, via Hammersmith and Chiswick.
Change of name
We have changed the name of this route from Cycle Superhighway 9 to Cycleway 9. Cycle Superhighways and Quietways are being combined into one cycle network called ‘Cycleways’.
TFL are working closely with the London Borough of Hounslow to develop proposals to extend Cycleway 9 further west through Brentford and towards Hounslow.
