Plans for protected cycle lanes on Hounslow Road, Hanworth
Hounslow Council first proposed protected cycle lanes leading to Oriel Academy on Hounslow Road, Hanworth in November 2014 and Councillors agreed for them to be built.
Now that the council are asking again, please support option A which gives the best protection to people cycling.
The consultation ends on 11th March 2018
This section of Hounslow Road runs Hanworth Park and connects with local school: Oriel Academy.
The council consultation also asks for further comments. We are asking for the cycle lanes to be separated from car parking by a curb to discourage car-users from driving on the cycle lane or on the pavement. The revised plans propose that the cycle lane disappears at a few points losing the continuity of the cycle lane. We urge you to request continuous cycle lanes on both sides of Hounslow Road.
Option B would be a further decline in the local cycling facilities, just when we are all looking for an improvement.
Hounslow Road is a wide road with plenty of space for the highway, cycle lanes, street trees and car parking. We believe Option A is a reasonable balance of all of these.
TW13 6QW in Hanworth on:
