Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 19 December 2019 asking for information about walking and cycling improvements along the A4, between Hammersmith Town Hall and the Hammersmith gyratory. I apologise for the delay in replying.

Your request has been considered under the terms of the Environmental Information Regulations (EIRs).  I can confirm that we hold some of the information you require.

The discussions were directly between Heidi Alexander Deputy Mayor of the GLA and the Leader of Hammersmith and Fulham Council (LBH&F), and as such we do not hold the wording of discussions had or agreements made with TfL. Please redirect that part of your request to the GLA or LBH&F who are best placed to assist you: and

We can however confirm that £300k has been made available by TfL to LBH&F in order to carry out a feasibility study for walking and cycling improvements alongside the A4. In addition to this a provisional sum of £20m has been allocated to LBH&F as part of the design and delivery of the Cycleway between Kensington Olympia and Brentford Town Centre within their Borough.  Please note that this cost is kept under constant review as the project matures.

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable to access it for any reason, please do not hesitate to contact me.
