Boston Park Road and Windmill Road (Brentford) Transport Improvements

Closed 19 Apr 2019

Opened 22 Mar 2019

Overview

We have developed proposals to create a better pedestrian and cycling environment on Boston Park Road and Windmill Road (north and south of the A4). The proposals include:

  • A contraflow cycle facility (i.e. opposite direction to motor traffic) on Boston Park Road, for eastbound cyclists. You can see an example of a contralow cycle facility by clicking here.
  • Widened footways where possible, to maximise space for pedestrians and improve accessibility for those with disabilities or using pushchairs.
  • New informal pedestrian crossings and raised junctions at side roads along Windmill Road, to improve pedestrian priority and routes to and from Brentford Station.
  • A ban on through traffic movements by Heavy Good Vehicles (HGVs) on the southern part of Windmill Road, between the A4 and Boston Manor Road, to create a more pedestrian friendly environment.
  • Upgrading existing single yellow lines to “At Any Time” double yellow line waiting restrictions at all junctions, and throughout Windmill Road, to reduce obstruction and improve sight lines.  

The proposed improvements are shown on the plans in the "Related" section below. 

To provide footway space for pedestrians, you will see from the plans that five mature trees located north of the A4 would be removed. This is regrettable, but we have identified suitable locations for the same number of new trees to be planted in the immediate vicinity, as shown on the same plan.

 

Why We Are Consulting

We welcome your feedback on the proposals, and would ask that you complete our short online survey to tell us what you think about them.

If you require any information in an alternative format, please let us know.

What Happens Next

We are not able to respond directly to every respondent, but all feedback will be summarised and presented to your local councillors along with our recommendations. We will update the webpage with that information once they have made a decision, which is likely to be by summer 2019.
