We consulted on two parts of the route in winter 2019:
Our response to issues raised during this consultation will be published in summer 2019 on the Kew Bridge/Duke Road consultation page.
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.
The proposed changes between Kensington Olympia and Brentford town centre include:
This section of Cycleway 9 would provide a continuous, largely-segregated route between Kensington Olympia and Brentford town centre, via Hammersmith and Chiswick.
We have changed the name of this route from Cycle Superhighway 9 to Cycleway 9. Cycle Superhighways and Quietways are being combined into one cycle network called 'Cycleways'.
We are working closely with the London Borough of Hounslow to develop proposals to extend Cycleway 9 further west through Brentford and towards Hounslow.
