Hounslow council approves plans for Cycleway 9
Amidst the national political chaos a big step was taken to invest in cycling infrastructure in the southwest of London, with Hounslow council giving its unanimous support for Cycleway 9.
The route, which will consist of a two-way segregated cycle lane, will run between Kensington Olympia and Hounslow, connecting town centres in west London through Hammersmith, Chiswick and Brentford.
In the council's report on which the decision was based, it is analysed that upon the successful completion of the project there will be important benefits in relation to air pollution, traffic congestion, local trade and hopefully a reduction of casualties in the borough.
Cycleway 9 is the latest in a line of developments that form a part of London Mayor Sadiq Khan's transport strategy and healthy streets approach by encouraging people to take up cycling, walking and public transport - with the goal of making London greener, healthier and more pleasant to live in.
