Proposed improvements between Wood Lane and Notting Hill Gate
We want your views on our proposals to transform roads in west London through four connected neighbourhood improvement schemes between Wood Lane and Notting Hill Gate.
The proposals are an important part of the Mayor's Transport Strategy. The proposals are guided by the Mayor's Healthy Streets Approach, which aims to encourage walking, cycling and public transport and make London greener, healthier and more pleasant. The proposals are also an important part of the Mayor's Walking and Cycling Action Plans. These complementary plans set out how we and London boroughs will work to increase the number of people walking and cycling, helping to address poor air quality and congestion, while improving infrastructure to make walking and cycling even easier, safer and more accessible for everyone.
These proposals would provide benefits for road users and communities in these areas, making it easier to cross busy roads, removing through traffic on some residential roads and offering a segregated space for people to cycle in west London. They would form part of London’s emerging cycling network and create a more appealing street environment for everyone to enjoy.
The proposals include:
- New and upgraded pedestrian crossings
- Public space improvements along the route to create more welcoming streets for people and communities to enjoy
- Two-way segregated cycle track throughout
- Changes to bus stop locations, with removal of some, and layout changes throughout, including new bus stop bypasses for cyclists
- Making some side roads entry or exit only to help the safe and timely movement of traffic
- Removal of some trees in Notting Hill Gate and Holland Park Avenue to accommodate the facilities with appropriate new trees planted nearby
- Changes to parking and loading bays and hours of operation
The proposed changes presented in this consultation are not final. We welcome your views on our proposals and your feedback will inform how we progress the schemes.
