I ride there every day. And no, the plan going east PAST the bridge is on its own segregated track until Watermans Art Centre.
Sorry, I am confusing everything. I meant to say going WEST, not East, sorry. My fault :)
Haha, kinda makes a difference!
Just a tiny bit. :-p
Looks like a significant step forward with Hounslow council showing support.
Chiswick residents put a resistance but nimbism failed.
Let's hope it's built and eventually linked to high street ken.
Made for an entertaining evening on periscope with the other parliamentory shenanigans on.
Anyone know whether construction of this is due to start soon? Was supposed to be late 2019.
So bored of contending with the pollution and massive heavy vehicles.
Would be good if they cracked on with this, now ready open for summer. They have the money.
Construction starting at Kew Bridge:
Bad note: more traffic for a while just now that I've got a car 😂
It seems disruption in the Kew Bridge area will last for the full year (until Late Autumn 2020)
Grim on Chiswick High Road now. Back to situation where humans are there on sufferance of motor vehicles.
Used to be relaxing to ride up and down (change direction) with ease as you needed to for shopping etc.
Now you have to do a precisely judged manoeuvre anticipating the speeds, intentions etc of various vehicles, or go around a lengthy one way system - all the while breathing in pollution and being deafened by noise.
As a result definitely not seeing the numbers of cyclists any more.
