Hammersmith Grove Zero Emission Zone

Closes 12 Dec 2018

Opened 7 Nov 2018

Overview

We’d like to reduce air pollution levels in Hammersmith Grove and make your neighbourhood more pleasant. To do this, we need to reduce vehicle emissions here, either by encouraging people to switch to lower emission cars or to walk, cycle or use public transport more often.

Previously, we consulted on phase one of our plan and have since introduced new parklets, electric vehicle charging points and changes to the road layout. These have provided much-needed greenery, cycle parking facilities and pleasant seating areas.

We’d now like your views on creating our first ever ‘zero-emission zone’ between Glenthorne Road and Beadon Road. Only electric or plug-in hybrid vehicles would be able to drive on this section of the road. Vehicles that don’t meet the requirements, would be diverted via Glenthorne Road, to Beadon Road.

What are the changes?

We’d like to:

  • Trial a zero-emission zone on Hammersmith Grove between Glenthorne Road and Beadon Road to allow only electric vehicles and plug in hybrid vehicles
  • Make Glenthorne Road two-way between Beadon Road and Hammersmith Grove
  • Keep the parking and loading space on Glentorne Road but widen the carriageway to enable two-way traffic
  • Improve the junction of Glenthorne Road and Beadon Road to discourage drivers from turning into Overstone Road and Glenthorne Road
  • Change the junction of Glenthorne Road and Hammersmith Grove. There’ll be two options to choose from.
  • Help local businesses reduce the number of visiting vehicles and move to less-polluting service and delivery vehicles.
