Chiswick High Road walking and cycling changes

In December 2020, as an emergency response to the pandemic, we and Hounslow Council introduced changes to Cycleway 9 along Chiswick High Road on a trial basis - including a fully protected cycle lane - to enable more cycling and help avoid a car-based recovery.

In the autumn, we will launch a six-month consultation on changes we are making to Chiswick High Road to help people to walk or cycle. To be notified when the consultation starts, please enter your email address in the ‘Stay Informed’ box and hit subscribe. Alternatively, please email us at haveyoursay@tfl.gov.uk and quote “Chiswick High

Improving the trial

We want to make sure the trial changes we made to Cycleway 9 works for as many people as possible. That’s why, over the last few months, Hounslow Council has been making improvements to the changes that were originally made to Chiswick High Road in December 2020. The improvements have focussed on the section between Goldhawk Road and Chiswick Lane and include:

  • Reinstating the left-turn filter lane at the junction of Chiswick Lane and Chiswick High Road to improve traffic flow and bus journey times
  • Reinstating the eastbound bus lane between Merton Avenue and Ravensmede Way to improve bus journey times

Soon, Hounslow Council will start building improvements west of Chiswick Lane towards Heathfield Terrace. A detailed rundown of the improvements that have been made so far as well as those still to come is available in the summary of changes document. There is also a map to illustrate the improvements. We're making these changes through a new Experimental Traffic Order which Hounslow Council's Cabinet agreed to in July 2021.

Listening to you

It’s important that we listen to local people and take on board their views. We are committed to engaging continuously with the local community. So far, we have:

  • Written to local people to introduce the changes (September 2020)
  • Updated the local community on construction (December 2020)
  • Updated the local community on completion of construction (December 2020)
  • Invited residents and stakeholders to speak to TfL one-on-one (January 2021)
  • Held 'Community Conversations’ with local residents and stakeholders about Cycleway 9 (February 2021). You can read our report from these conversations
  • Updated the local community about our latest proposals (July 2021)
  • Updated the local community about Hounslow's decision (August 2021)
  • Uploaded cycle counts data on this site
