Chiswick residents and traders have organised a meeting with Local Election candidates ahead of May 3 on the topic of the controversial cycle superhighway. The meeting is organised by the RedesignCS9 group whose slogan is 'Ditch It Or Switch It'.

The public meeting will take place at The George IV, Chiswick High Road on Monday, 30 April. The two-hour meeting starts at 7pm. Admission is free.

Members of the RedesignCS9 group have hired the public function room at The George IV for the meeting. They have invited all local election candidates standing in the W4 wards to attend the meeting which will be chaired by the former BBC and Classic FM presenter Susannah Simons.

RedesignCS9 spokesperson David Lesniak said, “By deferring a decision on CS9 until after the May elections, the London Borough of Hounslow has made CS9 a critical local election issue for the residents and traders of W4.

“This meeting is a chance for voters to engage in positive and constructive dialogue with the candidates seeking election on May 3 and for them to better understand and hear what local people have to say regards plans to build a Cycle Superhighway along Chiswick High Road.”

RedesignCS9 is asking W4 residents and traders to confirm their attendance at the meeting in advance by email to redesignCS9group@gmail.com.

The group says on it website: "Local elections are fought on local issues and we are told by prospective candidates that CS9 is the number one issue on the doorsteps of W4.

"It should be a cross-party issue, but CS9 has become politicised, so we must deal with reality.

"The three main parties naturally agree that roads should be safer for all users and that we must all become healthier and more active. But their position on CS9 differs substantially."

Redesign CS9 say they are apolitical.
