Hounslow to Brentford walking and cycling changes
We’re proposing to make a series of changes to help people to walk and cycle on Brentford High Street and London Road between Hounslow and Brentford town centres.
We’d like to know your thoughts on our proposals and we are holding a six-week consultation. You can reply by completing our survey, which should take no more than 5-10 minutes to complete.
If you prefer, you can email your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org or write to us at FREEPOST TFL HAVE YOUR SAY (Walking and cycling changes between Hounslow and Brentford), no stamp needed.
The closing date for comments is 16 February 2022.
Summary of changes
We’ve described the changes in more detail but in summary we are proposing to make the following changes:
- Providing new cycle lanes, which would be fully protected from traffic. On some sections, the cycle lanes would be ‘bi-directional’: this means that there would be two adjacent tracks for cyclists, one in each direction. On other sections, there would be a single cycle track on each side of the road
- Improved pedestrian crossings at a number of places to make it easier for people to cross the road
- New trees and other improvements to make the area look and feel more pleasant, while also helping to adapt to climate change – e.g. trees provide shade from extreme heat in summer and reduce flooding. In addition, new ‘rain gardens’ and Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) will be considered at the next phase of design, subject to feasibility
