‘Meanwhile the full, permanent scheme is still being developed. It will only be introduced once Hammersmith & Fulham Council has heard from residents, analysed traffic and usage data and fixed any issues or problems with this latest interim scheme’ the Council says.
‘Our goal is to make getting around in H&F better and safer for everyone – no matter how you travel. We’re committed to a final scheme to replace this trial. We will look at the data and listen to residents to develop the best Safer Cycle Pathway that we can’ said Cllr Wesley Harcourt, H&F Cabinet Member for the Environment.
Jane Wilmot OBE, co-chair of the Disabled Residents Working Group for the Safer Cycle Pathway, said:
‘We’re delighted to be working together with H&F in trying to provide a positive experience for blind, visually impaired and Disabled residents who face barriers in using the Safer Cycle Pathway.’
Future plans – A4
Once this interim scheme is completed, feedback from residents will feed into the final design of the Safer Cycle Pathway.
The council have also negotiated with TfL to fund a complementary scheme of improvements for a cycle highway along the A4 to make it ‘ideal for faster and experienced commuting riders’.
The improved cycle highway alongside the A4 will be a much better fit for those riders who simply want to get from A to B as quickly and safely as possible, they say.
