Cycleway 9

Watermans Park to Alexandra Road

Hounslow Council is building this section of C9. Work started in late October 2023 and will last until summer 2024. The works include:

  • One-way and protected cycle lanes on both sides of the high street
  • 2 new pedestrian crossings on Alexandra Road
  • High-quality pavement surfaces for pedestrians
  • Upgrades to 4 existing pedestrian crossings at Ferry Lane, Ealing Road, North Road and Holland Gardens
  • Redesign of side roads and junctions to make them safer for people walking and cycling

Extension to Hounslow town centre

We've worked closely with the London Borough of Hounslow on proposals to extend C9 further west through Brentford and towards Hounslow.

In early 2022, we ran a consultation on our proposals. Our consultation report is on the Hounslow to Brentford walking and cycling changes page.

Feedback from this first consultation will help us refine our proposals. We plan to hold one more consultation in 2024.

Waterman's Park to Kew Bridge

Hounslow Council has finished building the section of C9 between Waterman's Park and Kew Bridge. It connects to the completed route between Kew Bridge, Heathfield Terrace and Goldhawk Road.

Chiswick High Road

The section of C9 between Chiswick Lane and Heathfield Terrace on Chiswick High Road was made permanent by Hounslow in September 2023.

We held a consultation between October 2022 and April 2023 to help the Borough decide whether to make the scheme permanent. The consultation results are on the Cycleway 9 - Chiswick High Road consultation page.

Hammersmith gyratory

The Hammersmith gyratory section of C9 is complete.

The changes were developed in partnership with the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham (LBHF) with the aim of improving safety and accessibility for pedestrians and cyclists at one of London's most intimidating junctions. 

LBHF has now made this section of the scheme permanent.

Why we're building C9

The new cycle route will be clearer and safer for cyclists in west London, largely separating them from other vehicles.

The route, between Kensington Olympia and Brentford, connects town centres in west London through Hammersmith and Chiswick. It will link important amenities and facilities and make the areas more pleasant to live, work and spend time in.

The changes will also make it easier for pedestrians to cross busy roads and remove through traffic on some residential roads.

Previous consultations

We consulted on our full plans in autumn 2017.

We also consulted on two parts of the route in early 2019:

  • Kew Bridge and Kew Bridge Road to Wellesley Road
  • Duke Road and Duke's Avenue's junction with Chiswick High Road

Cycle network

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.

Cycleway 9 will offer a continuous, largely segregated route between Kensington Olympia and Brentford town centre, via Hammersmith and Chiswick.
