Hammersmith & Fulham Council is consulting on £2.7million plans to build a new slip-road at the top of Fulham Palace Road, as part of its “Get H&F Moving” campaign.
Around 200 more vehicles per hour will be able to clear the junction if the new slip-road is built leading to reduced queuing, improved journey times and better air quality, according to the council’s transport experts.
The main difference in the proposed layout is that northbound traffic is split from buses making their way into Hammersmith bus station and enters the gyratory further west.
The new design will help the flow of vehicles around Hammersmith Gyratory and up and down the congested Fulham Palace Road, according to the council. A new series of signal controlled crossing points, across all arms of the new junction, will also allow the new junction to operate more efficiently and provide easier access into the Broadway centre.
Cllr Nick Botterill, H&F Council Deputy Leader, says: “This new layout will relieve a lot of pressure at the top of Fulham Palace Road and free up one of the most congested north-south routes in our borough.”
