Hounslow Cycling strongly supports the proposed continuation of Cycleway 9 along the London Road from Hounslow to Brentford.
- It will make a dangerous road much safer for cyclists.
- It will underpin other TfL and Borough measures to encourage active and greener travel.
- It will encourage more people to cycle short journeys.
- It will result in cleaner air, healthier children, and lower carbon emissions in the borough.
C9 will also contribute to Sustainable Travel Promotion, one of the thirteen programmes in the Hounslow Climate Emergency Action Plan. Bikes have zero carbon emissions (unlike petrol and diesel cars) and much lower embedded carbon than cars, including electric cars.
