Strand On The GreenAssociation

Further consultation on proposed cycling and walking improvements in West London

This consultation relates to the Chiswick-Brentford section of CS9.

Dear stakeholder

In autumn 2017 we consulted on proposals to transform roads in Hammersmith, Chiswick and Brentford town centres as part of Cycle Superhighway 9 (CS9). We did this in close partnership with our London borough partners and other key stakeholders. The scheme is an important part of the Mayor’s Healthy Streets Approach, which aims to make London a greener, healthier and more pleasant place to live and work through encouraging walking, cycling and the use of public transport.

We received over 5,300 direct responses to our consultation. In February 2018 we published a factual summary of the consultation (click here to view the factual summary). The feedback we received has helped us to further improve the scheme’s design and we intend to proceed with our overall proposals. We plan to publish the full consultation report and our Response to the Issues Raised, including details of the design changes we have made, at tfl.gov.uk/cs9 this week.

We are carrying out a further consultation on two parts of the route, which have been redesigned in response to the feedback we received at consultation. These include the junction of Kew Bridge, Kew Bridge Road (High Street Brentford to Wellesley Road), and Chiswick High Road’s junctions with Duke’s Avenue and Duke Road. The design changes made at these two locations are significant enough to warrant going back to the public to seek their views.

The consultation will open on Wednesday 30 January and run for four weeks, closing at 23:59 on 26 February. Once open you will be able to access this at tlf.gov.uk/kew-duke.

Building a scheme that works for the local community it will serve is vital, and we will listen closely to the feedback we receive. We will seek to ensure people living and working in the communities around the two locations are aware of our revised proposals and get a chance to have their say. Everyone living near the two locations will receive a letter inviting them to contribute their views. We will hold public drop-in sessions during the consultation (details of which will be confirmed soon) and will go door-to-door visiting businesses near the two locations to raise awareness of the consultation.

We will analyse and consider all responses received to the further consultation at the two locations and publish our response in summer 2019.

Subject to the further consultation and remaining stages of our decision-making process, we intend to start building the route from Kensington Olympia to Brentford town centre later in 2019.

I would be grateful if you could share this information with your own contacts and network, to ensure that everyone who has a view gets a chance to contribute it.

Kind regards
