Major overhaul for Chiswick High Road
plans major package of new works including extended bus lanes, cycle paths
and pavement narrowing
Planners have identified 43 improvements including more bus lanes and cycle paths, resiting of pedestrian crossings and new loading bays for shops on Chiswick High Road. They are hoping to make the operation of the bus lanes 24 hours and enforcement cameras will be installed on the road. There will be an extra lane on the approach to Chiswick Roundabout.
According to the Council every weekday, the one kilometre stretch of Chiswick High Road from Chiswick Roundabout to Acton Lane carries up to 30,000 vehicles, including nearly 800 buses. Private car use is growing by 2-3 per cent each year and traffic congestion is increasing, putting enormous pressure on the road.
for the scheme is coming from Transport for London provided on the basis
that the plan supports bus use.
The Council has launched a consultation on the proposals, and would like to receive any comments or alternative suggestions on the scheme by Friday 15 August 2003. They have printed 10,000 full colour brochures which have been sent out to addresses in the vicinity of the road.
