Central London Cycle Grid, Cycle Route link in Bayswater

Westminster City Council, in partnership with Transport for London and other local authorities, is supporting the delivery of a proposed Central London Cycle Grid. This Cycle Grid is being funded under the Mayor of London's Vision for Cycling, a 10-year plan delivering cycling improvements across London. The plan includes a network of Quietways and Cycle Superhighway routes, providing connected ways for cycling across central London.

This project aims to improve provision for cycling on streets along a proposed Quietway cycle link in Bayswater. It will benefit all people who want to cycle in the area, particularly those wishing to avoid some of the busier, highly trafficked main roads.

The section of the Central London Cycle Grid consulted on is approximately 1km in length within the City of Westminster and will continue into the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea along Talbot Road, west of Ledbury Road. The Streets affected by this proposal are:

•    Prince’s Square
•    Leinster Square
•    Hereford Road
•    Talbot Road

It is intended that this short cycling route will connect to a proposed Quietway cycle route between Bayswater Road and Edgware Road, which was consulted on by Westminster City Council until 11 March 2016, and can be viewed at https://www.westminster.gov.uk/quietway-route-bayswater-road-edgware-road

Proposed intervention measures

Along Hereford Road, including the western arm of Prince’s Square and the western arm of Leinster Square, we are proposing new wayfinding symbols on the road to help cyclists follow this route.

Along Talbot Road, wayfinding symbols are also proposed on the road to help cyclists follow this route. We are proposing Advanced Stop Line facilities at the junction of Talbot Road and Chepstow Road to assist cyclists.

This consultation closed on Friday 18 March 2016.
