Ealing Council has secured funding from Transport for London (TfL), as part of investment across the capital to create a healthier, cleaner and more inclusive city.
The Healthy Streets approach prioritises people’s wellbeing, making streets more pleasant places to spend time and making it easier to walk and cycle safely. By investing in community-led improvements, the council wants to make the area greener, healthier, and a more attractive place to live, work and play.
The proposed route would provide a local walking and cycling link from Ealing Broadway along Gordon Road, through quiet streets to Pitshanger Park and on to Greenford Road via Ruislip Road East, ending at the busy parade of shops, restaurants and cafes.
Transforming the route
During phase one, a motor traffic-free path was constructed alongside Ruislip Road East between Greenford Broadway and Pitshanger Park, with improvements to bus stops, side road junctions and crossings for people wanting to join the route.
The one-mile path has transformed this popular route, more people feel safe when walking and cycling, including those who are cycling or scooting with children. The second phase aims to connect the traffic-free path on Ruislip Road East with Ealing Broadway, via Pitshanger Park, St. Stephen’s roundabout and Gordon Road.
Sustrans have been commissioned by Ealing Council to run a series of community engagement events including pop ups and a co-design workshop to hear your views, which will help us to develop the best proposals for the area.
We are inviting residents to have their say on the proposed Cycleway route between Ealing Broadway and Pitshanger Park at https://sustrans.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/ealing-cycleway until Thursday 4 July 2019.
A series of public events are also taking place for residents to find out more about the proposal, ask questions and the survey. The next drop-in workshop is on Wednesday, 3 July from 3-6pm at Notting Hill & Ealing High School Sixth Form Centre.
Following the survey, we are inviting residents to take part in a drop-in co-design workshop where you will be able to explore the issues raised and develop potential solutions with a team of engineers and urban designers. The workshop will be held at St Stephen’s Church hall, 1 St Stephen’s Rd, W13 8HB on Tuesday, 16 July from. 4-7pm
At the end of this stage, we will consider all the feedback received and a proposed package of work will be put forward for the area, consisting of a number of schemes and complementary measures. These proposals will then be shared via email or mail on request.
