Hammersmith consult on Shepherds Bush

shepherds bush improvements sep 2013LB Hammersmith & Fulham are consulting on £3.5m plans for a new look for Shepherds Bush town centre.

H&F Council has a set of proposals for a major transport improvement scheme, covering the area from the eastern ends of Goldhawk Road and Uxbridge Road to Coverdale Road and Devonport Road.

The consultation runs until Sunday October 6.

The scheme includes plans to upgrade and redesign the roads and footways in the area, improve pedestrian crossing points and de-clutter the streets, which in turn would provide better links between Shepherds Bush and White City.

Councillor Victoria Brocklebank-Fowler, cabinet member for transport and technical services, said: “This is an exciting time for Shepherds Bush and White City, with many regeneration and development projects in the area and this scheme will also help to bring vitality to this part of town.

“We want people to find it easier and safer to get around, and this investment will make the area look better and feel more welcoming.”

Funding for these works, which are planned to begin in the winter, is coming from Transport for London (TfL), developers S106 contributions, and the council.
