The plans to make this area a safer, more appealing place to cycle and walk include a two-way cycle track next to the footpath running from Kathleen Avenue to Wood Lane.
The scheme should encourage people who want to walk or cycle to and from central London but currently feel unable to travel more actively. West London has been identified as an area of high demand for cycling but where better cycle facilities are needed.
The main proposed changes between Acton and Wood Lane include:
The scheme would be part of London's expanding cycling network. This is an important part of the Mayor's Transport Strategy and Healthy Streets approach, which aim to encourage walking, cycling and the use of public transport.
We consulted on our plans in early 2016. A consultation report and a summary of design changes made since the consultation is available on the East-West Cycle Superhighway consultation page.
We are working closely with Hammersmith & Fulham and Kensington & Chelsea councils to develop proposals that would link this scheme further east, connecting Wood Lane, Shepherd's Bush Green, Holland Park Avenue and Notting Hill Gate.
We consulted on these proposals in May/June 2019 - see the details on the Wood Lane and Notting Hill Gate consultation page.
