Hounslow Council have some proposals for the Great West Corridor (along the A4) from Osterley in the west to Chiswick Roundabout in the east. Their proposals include:
- The Great West Cycleway “improved cycle lanes along the A4 to provide a safe, segregated and continuous east-west route, attracting more cyclists from a greater catchment”
- The Boston Boardwalk “a new boardwalk to provide a direct and high quality pedestrian and cycle link to the Blue Sky block from Boston Manor station”
The Great West Road was built in 1924 and in 1936-7 cycle tracks 9 foot wide were built either side along its length. These original cycleways were gradually eroded away as more car lanes were added. Transport for London currently control the design and upkeep of this road and have done so since Transport for London was created in 2000.
