Not one, but two cycle lanes!

Hammersmith is set to get not one but two new cycle routes: a fully segregated cycle pathway continuing the route from Chiswick High Rd and also improvements to the cycle highway along the A4.

The news has been released from Hammersmith & Fulham Council before Transport for London’s announcement on the whole CS9 route, which is expected soon. The A4 path is expected to be faster and used by experienced commuting riders.

The council say they consulted widely, including asking the borough’s resident-led Independent Disabled People’s Commission to review the scheme to make sure it works for all. TfL has confirmed work on the new cycle pathway along King Street is scheduled to begin later this year. Details for the improvements to the route alongside the A4 are yet to be confirmed.

A spokesperson from the Hounslow Cycling Campaign said, “We welcome the news from Hammersmith and Fulham about plans for cycle routes through Hammersmith and look forward to reviewing the details when they are available.”
