Cycleway 9: Watermans Park to Alexandra Road: Morrisons Supermarket

We’re creating a new cycle network across Hounslow to help connect our people with key destinations, residential areas, and inner London in a safe and sustainable way. In partnership with Transport for London, works are underway on the Cycleway 9 (C9) route between Watermans Park and Alexandra Road (Morrisons Supermarket).

This new section will connect to the newly completed route between Kew Bridge and Watermans Park.

Works on this section of the project will continue until the summer of 2024.


Update – March 2024

We’re delivering dedicated cycle lanes, to help people travelling in Hounslow reach their destination in a safe and sustainable way. 

From 18 March 2024, works will commence at the junction of Ealing Road and Brentford High Street. Crews will be undertaking resurfacing and drainage works, as well as improvements to footways and the pedestrian crossing at the intersection.

To help keep everyone safe, alternating temporary lanes closures, or shuttle flow, will be in place at different times during works. Temporary traffic lights will be on site to help guide road uses safely through the area. Delays are expected, particularly at peak times. 

If you can, please consider avoiding the area during peak times or consider using alternative modes of transport to travel through the junction.

If you do need to travel through the area, keep an eye out for changed traffic conditions and allow for some extra travel time.

Changes to bus services  

To help us deliver this exciting project, there will be some changes to bus services traveling along Brentford High Street.

Permanent changes to bus stops

Buses traveling eastbound towards Chiswick will no longer be stopping at the Brentford County Court or Musical Museum. These stops are now permanently closed.

Passengers can still use the following stops along Brentford High Street to access these services safely, which are only a short walk from the permanently closed stops.

  • Watermans Centre (Eastbound)
  • Holland Gardens (Eastbound)

To support our community, we’re also creating a new bus stop as part of these works to replace the Brentford County Court westbound stop.

The Ferry Lane bus stop will replace the old Brentford Country Court (Eastbound) stop and will be located near the intersection of Ealing Road and Brentford High Street.

It is currently under construction and will be open for use in the coming months.

Temporary changes during works

While works are underway, there will also be some temporary bus stop closures along Brentford High Street.

Upcoming temporary bus stop closures include:

  • Market Place Brentford (Westbound towards Isleworth) will be closed from 12 April 2024, reopening early July 2024.
  • Market Place Brentford (Eastbound towards Chiswick) will be closed from 18 March 2024, reopening 25 March 2024.
