Making Prebend Two-Way for Bikes

Local residents have outlined a proposal to make Prebend Gardens two-way for bike.   As we await the plans from the London Boroughs of Hammersmith &Fulham and Hounslow to amend the proposals for a Cycle Superhighway along Chiswick High Road, we have an opportunity to submit ideas to make the cycling infrastructure around it work better for Residents.  

A key point of discussion at recent Stamford Brook drinks has been finding ways to make cycling into Chiswick and Hammersmith better for all ages of cyclist and, in particular, how to make better links with what is proposed for the High Street.

While cycle access along the Bath Road is good (if slighly scary when the traffic is racing), the main point of contention is getting in and out of Prebend Gardens.

Currently, all traffic, including cycles, have to turn left at the top of Prebend and can't legally head into Chiswick without dismounting and crossing the road. At the same time, when returning from Chiswick no traffic can turn into Prebend as it is a one-way street.

There is a growing fashion among road planners to install cycle lanes in one-way streets that allow cyclists to travel against the vehicle traffic (see pictures at the bottom of the article).
