Transport for London (TfL) has launched a consultation on Cycling Superhighway 9 (CS9), which would affect roads in west Kensington, Hammersmith, Chiswick and Brentford town centre.

TfL said CS9 would provide improvements for all road users and communities on the alignment and aims to offer a clearer and safer route for people to cycle in west London, making it easier to cross busy roads and removing through traffic on some residential roads.

It admitted that transforming road layouts is not without impacts, and there are difficult choices to be made in determining the layout for roads on the alignment. It said the proposed changes would affect travel times through the area for many people. Parking in the area could also be affected.

The public consultation is open now and closes on October 31, 2017.
