The new facilities make this area a safer, more appealing place to cycle and walk. They 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 where demand for cycling is high but better cycle facilities are needed.
The main changes between Acton and Wood Lane include:
The scheme is 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. See the consultation report and a summary of design changes made after that consultation on the East-West Cycle Superhighway consultation page.
We consulted on these proposals in May/June 2019. We are now working closely with Hammersmith & Fulham to finalise our plans in the borough - these would connect to the new facilities along the A40.
We're also talking with Kensington and Chelsea about potential changes to the proposals which we believe would address concerns raised during the consultation.
Our November 2019 consultation report is on the Wood Lane and Notting Hill Gate consultation page.
