Kew Bridge Step Free Walkway

Closed 30 Mar 2020

Opened 2 Mar 2020


The council has been working for some time to improve pedestrian connections along the Thames Path, including for those with disabilities, by opening up one of the arches on the north side of Kew Bridge for public use.  

Providing step free access between Brentford and Strand-on-the-Green has been a longstanding request from the local residents' association, and having secured the backing of Transport for London, we have developed two design options for the arch.

We consider Option A our preferred option, as this is less invasive to the listed structure, and allows greater space for community input at later date. Option A is also slightly cheaper, but the budget for either of these options is secure. 

Design considerations for both options are shown on one drawing in the "Related" section below. The other drawing highlights the arch in question.



Why we are consulting

We are now seeking your views as to which of the proposed design options you prefer, and would be grateful if you could fill out the short survey below.

What happens next

The consultation feedback will be summarised to inform the choice between the two design options, and we will aim to implement the project in time for the annual Tidefest festival this September.
