Chiswick High Road will be turned into a bike motorway under Labour plans that will see pavements narrowed, trees cut down and pedestrians put at risk.
Labour run TfL and Hounslow Council are conspiring to bring a Cycle Motorway down Chiswick High Road. The plans would bring chaos to the heart of Chiswick and damage its environment, shops and accessibility.
* Traffic gridlock on the High Road causing a pollution nightmare in an area of already poor air quality
* Shops and restaurants forced to close and the future of commerce on the High Road placed under threat
* Pedestrians put in danger by speeding commuter cyclists
"Labour-run TfL and Hounslow Council have followed an anti-car, anti-Chiswick agenda and ignored better alternatives such as the route via the A4 that would do no damage," explained Cllr Gerald McGregor, Councillor for Chiswick Homefields.
"The £70m cost of the scheme could be better spent to benefit all residents, and prioritise cyclists, through the repair of potholes, and better maintenance of our streets."
