Shepherd's Bush Town Centre (West) Major Scheme

Closed 6 Oct 2013

Opened 9 Sep 2013

Overview

In February 2011 Hammersmith & Fulham Council launched a campaign called Get H&F Moving in a bid to improve the borough’s network of roads and traffic flow in the borough. Since then, many transport projects have been introduced that have helped improve the roads and streets in H&F, along with reducing congestion.

The Council is set to revamp Shepherd’s Bush through a major transport improvement scheme, covering the area from the eastern ends of Goldhawk Road and Uxbridge Road to Coverdale Road, Lime Grove and Devonport Road. This will be done through funding from the Council, Transport for London (TfL) and local developers.

The scheme includes plans to upgrade and redesign the roads and footways in the area, improve pedestrian crossing points and de-clutter the streets, which in turn will provide better links between Shepherd’s Bush and White City. The improvements could last up to 20 years, meaning that fewer street repairs will be needed in the future, saving taxpayers money. It is also anticipated that the enhancements will lead to a 35 per cent reduction in the number of road traffic accidents in Goldhawk Road and Uxbridge Road in future.

The proposals were drawn up following a ‘blank canvas’ consultation with residents and businesses in March 2012 and further consultations with local businesses, schools, the police and London Buses.
