There is still no firm date for the reopening of Cycleway 9 in Chiswick but Hounslow Council say the latest phase of the project will be completed this month.
Phase 3a of the scheme continues with work currently taking place on the junction of Chiswick High Road and Goldhawk Road. St. Peter's Square is being fully closed at the junction with Chiswick High Road to allow for work on the footway and carriageway. Work is also due to complete near the junction with British Grove. The work at St Peter's Square is expected to last until 25 June and, once completed, will be the final component of phase 3a with the reinstatement of traffic signals.
During the road closure, St Peter’s Square will be accessible via British Grove and Black Lion Lane and exit via Standish Road.
Hounslow Highways, which will be managing the works, will be on site from 7.30am to 4pm Monday to Saturday.
London's Walking and Cycling Commissioner, Will Norman, said this week said on social media that work on Cycleway 9 was 'progressing well' without giving a date for completion.
Hounslow Council says there will then be a pause in construction. It is not clear if this will include the full reopening of the cycleway between Chiswick Lane and Goldhawk Road.
Work will then resume on the cycleway in September in phase 3b. In the same month a statutory consultation will be launched on the revised design of Cycleway 9.
Permits have been obtained for work at side road crossings of the cycleway including at Brackley Road, Linden Gardens, Duke Road and Turnham Green Terrace. These works which will require road closures were originally scheduled to begin this month. There are currently no programmed dates for these closures although they won't take place until after mid-August. The council says it will contact residents and businesses in the vicinity in advance of any works.
