We consulted on our plans in autumn 2017. The consultation report is now available on the Cycle Superhighway 9 consultation page.
A more detailed report with an outline of the proposed next steps will be published later in 2018.
The new superhighway would provide a clearer and safer route 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 would also make it easier for pedestrians to cross busy roads and remove through-traffic on some residential roads.
The route would form part of London's expanding network of Cycle Superhighways.
These are an important part of the Mayor's Transport Strategy and Healthy Streets approach, which aim to encourage walking, cycling and using public transport, and make London greener, healthier and more pleasant.
The proposed changes between Kensington Olympia and Brentford town centre include:
This section of CS9 would provide a continuous, largely-segregated route between Kensington Olympia and Brentford town centre, via Hammersmith and Chiswick. Subject to consultations and approvals from partner boroughs, we intend to start work in late 2018.
We are working closely with the London Borough of Hounslow to develop proposals to extend CS9 further west through Brentford and towards Hounslow. We expect to hold a public consultation on this in 2019.
