Council consults on Chiswick Road proposals

A new 'Green Areas' scheme is being considered for Chiswick Road and Acton Lane to tackle the problem of rat-running in the area.

Hounslow Council is currently consulting on five options, with the primary aim of reducing or eliminating through-traffic on Chiswick Road - which currently has up to 400 vehicles per hour - as well as a range of measures to improve the local environment.

Other elements of the proposed scheme include upgrading crossing facilities at both ends of Chiswick Road and improving pedestrian and cycle conditions throughout the area, particularly between Chiswick High Road and Chiswick Park underground station.

Consultation closes on 21 February, and a report on the scheme will be discussed at the Council's Chiswick Area Committee (Planning) on Wednesday 26 February. Work is expected to begin in early March, with completion in approximately three months.
