Hammersmith set for road investment

Transport is set to get a multi-million pound cash injection next week, if Hammersmith & Fulham Council approves plans to improve roads in the borough.

A plan to pump £2.6m into the road network and transport system in 2014/15 will be debated this week and, if approved, would give the green light to projects to improve main roads, boost cycling numbers, support regeneration areas and remove clutter from streets and pavements.

As part of the Get H&F Moving campaign, the council has been working to improve local transport, and cut down on congestion.

The various schemes cover all parts of the borough and bring to a conclusion a five-year cycle of transport programmes. The projects are being funded by Transport for London.

Cllr Victoria Brocklebank-Fowler, cabinet member for transport and technical services, said: “There is a whole host of enhancements to the road and transport network in the plan and will deal with issues like travel and safety education for children, programmes to encourage more people to take up cycling and improving air quality. There are also general maintenance projects that will make road surfaces better and get rid of clutter and unnecessary signs on our pavements.”
