Cycle Superhighway 9
Transport for London (TfL) has acknowledged that there were significant flaws in the consultation held for Cycle Superhighway 9 (CS9). They have now pledged to consult more widely in advance of submitting a revised plan which they will do once they have fully assessed responses to the initial design. Hounslow Council’s transport department has objected to some of the proposals on traffic management issues, particularly involving junctions. The Council delayed its official response to the CS9 plan because of the local elections. It is now not likely to be forthcoming until after the next consultation, which will be on the modified scheme. That will then be followed by a statutory consultation.

Transport for London’s proposals for Cycle Superhighway 9 from Kensington Olympia to Brentford town centre has been the subject of much comment in the Evening Standard and elsewhere, most objecting on grounds that Chiswick High Road is not approprrate as the road is a relatively narrow traditional high street. There are concerns over traffic congestion and the impact on local shops. Although the highway does not pass through Kew, we have concerns over the impact around the junction with Kew bridge will be affected.
