The  cycleway 9 route through Chiswick is one of three major cycle infrastructure projects on Transport for London’s short-term priority list.

The others are the part-complete cycleway 4 scheme that will link Tower Bridge, Greenwich and Woolwich, and the Hackney to Canary Wharf cycleway via Victoria Park.

TfL also hopes to create cycleways between Lea Bridge and Dalston, and Camden and Tottenham, but these are at preliminary stages.

However the cash crisis that has resulted from the collapse in passenger numbers due to Covid restrictions means it will have far less to spend, though Mayor Sadiq Khan has vowed to prioritise measures to encourage walking and cycling and discourage car use.

An upgrade of the CS7 cycleway between Colliers Wood and Elephant and Castle is in the pipeline, as is the introduction of new cycle lanes on the A21 between Lewisham and Catford.

The cycleway 9 route is due to extend from Brentford to Olympia via Chiswick and Hammersmith, and will link with Kensington High Street – where temporary segregation for cyclists has been introduced – and on to the flagship East-West segregated superhighway between Hyde Park and Tower Hill via the Victoria Embankment.
