Draft Cycling Strategy

Closed 2 Feb 2015

Opened 10 Dec 2014

Overview

London is undergoing a Cycling Revolution. The Mayor’s Vision for Cycling in London (published in 2013) sets out a significant programme of work to transform cycling in the Capital. The Draft Hammersmith & Fulham Cycling Strategy is part of this Council's approach to encouraging cycling within the Borough.

The Draft Hammersmith & Fulham Cycling Strategy sets out the strategic vision, the broad objectives, and key actions for the future cycling network in the Borough. Our “Way Forward” is intended to tackle some of the major challenges to cycling in the Borough, such as road safety and interactions between different road users.

The Cycling Strategy integrates new proposals and improvements into existing schemes and programmes to build on our current cycle network and encourage the use of cycling for everyday transport.

The Cycling Strategy does not go into exact detail about new cycle routes and cycling infrastructure as these specific schemes (such as the A315 Segregated Route, and Hammersmith Broadway Junction) will be subject to separate design and consultation procedures at a later date.

Why We Are Consulting

The current Hammersmith & Fulham Cycling Strategy was first published in 2004. Now is the time to update the Cycling Strategy to reflect the current status and demand for cycling in the Borough.

As part of the public consultation process we would like your opinions and comments on the draft document. We are particularly interested in whether you support the overall vision, objectives, and key actions in the Cycling Strategy.

This consultation and your comments will help us refine the final Cycling Strategy so that we can get on with improving cycling in Hammersmith & Fulham.
