Question

You will by now have received a letter from the Mayor of Hammersmith and Fulham about the possibility of Transport for London providing a footbridge across the A4 at Barons Court underground station. This would be a fitting monument to the 100 year Anniversary of the1908 Olympic Games at White City, but would also provide a safe crossing for the many students at West London College.

Will the Mayor give this suggestion serious consideration?

TfL have looked at this location and confirm that there is insufficient highway land available to physically construct a footbridge here.However, TfL is currently carrying out an investigation at the junction, and during this will investigate how to improve the pedestrian experience. This study will be completed by the end of the financial year, following which TfL will be in a position to report on proposed improvements at the junction. TfL will continue to liaise with borough traffic officers on this matter.
