We consulted on our plans in autumn 2017. An updated consultation report and our response to the issues raised during is now available on the Cycle Superhighway 9 consultation page.
We consulted on two parts of the route in winter 2019:
Details are on the Kew Bridge/Duke Road consultation page.
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.
Later in 2019 we will change the name of routes on our cycle network, replacing 'Cycle Superhighway' and 'Quietway'.
We are working closely with the London Borough of Hounslow to develop proposals to extend CS9 further west through Brentford and towards Hounslow.
