Cycle lane not open till the new year

The cycle lane through Chiswick High Rd was supposed to be open yesterday (Friday 18 December) but it isn’t because of some problem with the traffic lights.

Transport for London said on 18 December:

‘New traffic lights are being introduced on Chiswick High Road before Christmas and the temporary cycle tracks will open as soon as possible after that.

‘We had hoped to open the cycle tracks sooner, but we identified some technical problems with the new traffic light cables yesterday, which require additional work’.

The final work on it won’t now be done until the new year, they say, but once it is, the traffic lights will adjust automatically, in real-time, in response to traffic conditions, ‘which will help to reduce congestion’.

Transport for London has released its annual transport survey, which shows how drastically the pandemic has affected transport in London.
