Opened 15 Jul 2019

Results Updated 13 Sep 2019

No objections werer received following consultation, and we therefore plan to progress with the improvements on Devonshire Road, and will instruct our contractors accordingly so that work can commence in the coming months. 

 

Overview

Following requests to improve cycle access and pedestrian crossing facilities to the local shops on Devonshire Road, the Traffic and Transport team have carefully examined the immediate area and propose to introduce the following measures.

  • To address the lack of a dropped crossing facility for pedestrians, dropped kerbs with tactile paving are proposed near numbers 2 - 6 Devonshire Road, as shown on the plan below. Dropped kerbs will facilitate crossing the road for all pedestrians, in particular the more vulnerable road users such as those with mobility aids, visual impairments, or those using buggies.
  • In addition, three cycle stands are proposed on the east side footway (outside numbers 2 – 6 Devonshire Road). Stands in this location minimises obstruction or interference to pedestrian movements and access to the shops.
  • An additional two cycle stands are proposed, on the footway adjacent to 163/165 Chiswick High Road.
