On this page you can read about how we are proposing to improve safety between Shepherd’s Bush Green and Holland Park Roundabout.


We want to hear your views on this project and how this may impact you.

You have until 3 March 2024 to give us your feedback.







Proposals

We propose to provide a new high-quality Cycleway and improvements for pedestrians. The changes would make streets in the area safer and more pleasant by enabling people to walk and cycle more and drive less.

Please watch the video below to see a fly through of the changes we are proposing:


The changes we would like to make include:

  • New two-way protected cycle lane – From the eastern side of Shepherd’s Bush Green and along the southern side of Holland Park Roundabout connecting to Holland Park Avenue. There will be separate low level cycle signals at junctions, new cycle crossings and better connections to other local cycle routes
  • New section of priority bus lane - This is on the southside of Shepherd’s Bush Green
  • Improvement to the existing toucan crossing - This crossing outside Shepherd’s Bush station across Uxbridge Road and Shepherd’s Bush Green will be, widened, and realigned making it easier to cross
  • Sustainable drainage and Greening – We will add more trees and planting where space allows

We know that life is busy and you may just have one short moment to tell us what you think of our proposals. That's why we now let you submit a quick consultation response.

This is different from our consultation survey as we ask just one short question "Tell us what you think of our proposal".

Your response can be long or short, but importantly it lets us know your views. 

You will need to register with our Have Your Say platform to give us your quick response, although your details will be kept secure.  

 You have until 3 March 2024 to give us your feedback.

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

Great idea and it won't have a negative impact on traffice when completed. This should go ahead.

Hugely support. There is a major lack of cycling infrastructure in the area, so this is a great first step in the right direction.

Great idea have had many close misses over the years on this dangerous roundabout this will make it easer and less stressful for drivers too. Could go further still, so cyclists and pedestrians don’t have to wait for lights to change - ie bridges or new tunnels..

jmini23 about 2 months ago

Excellent idea and much needed. Ignore the chatter of the naysayers.
One thing: please decrease the wait time at the many lights for active travellers. For instance the lights in situ from Shepherd’s Bush tube to the south side have a very short wait time for pedestrians. And this has no impact on traffic flow. Conversely the wait time at Parliament Square for cyclists at the many lights means it takes 5 minutes to cross from the south side to the embankment which is too long. Let’s not have a repeat of that here. It encourages rule breaking.

Dear TfL, thank you. I have been almost knocked off my bike at this junction in broad daylight, wearing high vis and all. The driver was too distracted trying to cut across 3 lanes whilst coming onto the roundabout, not checking their mirrors. This change will have a huge impact on safety. The junction is already clogged full of vehicles not moving anywhere, the changes will make a negligble difference to vehicle travel times through the junction. I would strongly hope that TfL also prioritises the buses over the private vehicles, the number of PHV clogging up the roads here is insane, and they are grinding our city to a halt.

Vikash Shah about 2 months ago

Excellent idea, 100% this scheme needs to be implemented. Cycling, alongside public transport, is the future of sustainable travel and London needs to continue demonstrating it is willing to adapt to this, regardless of local politics.
This roundabout is extremely dangerous (deadly even) and intimidating, these proposals will definitely make it safer and encourage more people to cycle. There are generally many missing cycling links in this borough and it's neighbour so this is a step in the right direction.
To people worrying about traffic congestion, there is countless research that demonstrates the concept of induced demand. Having more lanes just ends up in more cars. We need to be discouraging unnecessary car travel wherever possible, and promoting cycling. It's a win-win as those who can cycle have improved journeys, and those who need to drive will eventually see fewer cars on roads as driving becomes a less relevant means of private transportation.

bhbush about 2 months ago

Terrible idea, wholly against this. The traffic backlog in several directions will increase traffic and pollution and cause the same type of chaos as other recent cycle lane attempts has. The proposed solutions here will increase congestion in the roundabout areas and as a resident just off this roundabout I do not want to be exposed to even more fumes than we are already.

Shushumushu about 2 months ago

This scheme will allow me to visit my sister and her family and go for meals out in Shepherd's Bush, without risking my life as I cycle there and back home. Get on with it.

moretree5 about 2 months ago

Fully supportive. It's very confusing and risky as a cyclist to figure out how to get from the w12 shopping centre across to the green. Would like to have the scheme extend into Holland Park Avenue.

AG London about 2 months ago

I agree with the principle of making cycling safer at the roundabout. The current mixed zone creates danger for pedestrians and many cyclists ends up on the car lanes at the roundabout. Things like wider pedestrian/cycling crossing should help with that. However i fear many of the proposed changes suggested will be counterproductive, as others have pointed out the roundabout is already heavily congested due to merging of multiple lanes from A40 exits and Holland road which are main traffic routes for the area. There are no other appropriate routes for traffic. It’s important to consider that many of the cars journeys through the roundabout are not short trips taken by residents in the area, but are from the main traffic routes above. Therefore the proposed scheme will unlikely discourage use of cars for the location.

SBush_family01 about 2 months ago

I think this cycle lane is essential - increasingly more people, including me, have adopted cycling as their main mode of transportation yet London is lagging hugely behind in terms of accessible and safe cycle routes. This proposal is a much needed step in the right direction providing more safety on what is currently a very dangerous roundabout!

Avd about 2 months ago

Excellent initiative, it is a bit too messy right now and far too much mixing with pedestrians or cars

SLaurent about 2 months ago

I’m a cyclist and commuter who passes through this roundabout multiple times a week. The intersection is complete chaos and very unsafe for cyclists. We desperately need a cycling lane that will improve safety infrastructure for city commuters.

kensingtonian1 about 2 months ago

I fully support the proposal to make this roundabout safer for cyclists and pedestrians.

martinc about 2 months ago

This proposal will not succeed in its aims. It will cause more congestion in Holland park avenue, probably more accidents, more pollution and it may only benefit a small number of commuter cyclists. Why are they given priority ? They pass no tests and many of them are very dangerous. Few over 75's cycle, and younger families with children are unlikely to do so on a weekday. I live in the area and i often walk from Holland Park Avenue to Shepherds Bush. The lights work perfectly well and I've never seen a pedestrian make a dangerous crossing. I'm afraid that the proposal is as foolish as the one that turned a perfectly free flowing Park lane into a continual blockage by making a cycle lane just a few yards from a parallel one in Hyde Park.

Jinx about 2 months ago

hi there, I'm both a homeowner ,a driver and a cyclist living very close to the area affected. The traffic is already terrible and very noisy in the evenings. I think this scheme will make it worse. The bayswater cycle scheme saw a huge leap in congestion on that main road and this will be a continuation of it. I have back to back traffic outside my home from late afternoon onwards every day with cars trying to escape the traffic jam, this often means that I can't take my own car out as there isn't room. I fully support safe cycling, but I also fully support safe driving. this will make drivers more impatient and even angrier which is safe for no-one. It will also be a noisy messy scheme to put in for not that much of an improvement for cyclists. There are good traffic lights at the roundabout for pedestrians and cyclists alike to cross on foot. It's safest and least disruptive to leave it the way it is.

bella pollen about 2 months ago

I fully support the scheme. The intersection is a nighmare for cyclists and pedestrians given the volume and speed of traffic, the number of lanes and the general rush associated with the roundabout. These changes will almost certainly save lives

SiGlu about 2 months ago

I have been against a similar project for a cycling lane in Holland park avenue. I thought TFL would have respected the view of the majority but I see TFL.is coming back with more of the same. Even worse I believe TFL is trying to implement this project to create the preconditions to come back again and again for an extension of the cycling lane in the avenue. For both projects my answer is NO

Paola broyd about 2 months ago

It seems like a good idea. If it helps make the area safer then I would be in favour of it. In particular, for cyclists.

LondonerA1234 about 2 months ago

I have seen some submissions on the website. I agree with the excellent submissions of foroufwol, EBLondon77, Residentwll, cockneyll, marinapuig and others. Well done them!

It is clear that the proposals will add significantly to traffic congestion. This may be the intention.

No thought seems to have been given to the effect on the old, who cannot now cycle and have to use their cars. To this extent I suggest that the Equalities Impact Assessment is flawed; the lawfulness of the consultation is thus in question.

I am absolutely against the proposal.
