The Mayor


A question from my constituent: The previous Mayor told Fiona Twycross AM (e.g. question 2015/1068) and Navin Shah AM (e.g. 2015/0330) that building a replacement bridge on Old Oak Common Lane under the Great Western Main Line and making it wide enough for segregated cycling lanes was 'not guaranteed'. Can you let me know if your lobbying has resulted in a guarantee by HS2 Ltd for a replacement bridge with segregated cycling lanes?

Transport for London, the Old Oak Common and Park Royal Development Corporation, and the London Borough of Ealing are all working closely with HS2 Ltd to deliver a comprehensive surface transport package to serve the Old Oak Common Station and wider regeneration area. This includes the incorporation of appropriate cycling infrastructure across the area.

At present there are no proposals to deliver segregation on Old Oak Common Lane, including under the replacement Great Western Mainline Bridge. However, the London Borough of Ealing has secured funding and a commitment from HS2 Ltd to provide segregated cycle facilities along Victoria Road instead. This is nearby and a good quality alternative cycle route.
