Hammersmith Gyratory - Fulham Palace road Slip Road project
The slip road project which allows the surface level crossings of the Fulham Palace road is designed for buses and motor vehicles, with consideration for the convenience and safety of cyclists appearing to be an afterthought. This is expected to be finished in 2011/2012.
The latest design is given here. Cyclists on E-W / W-E routes are expected to pass through a gap less than 2.5m wide between a flyover support [marked as a black rectangle just below the Talgarth rd on the right] and subway railings [marked as Subway entrance / exit]. There will also be pedestrians using this gap. A small island is meant to cater for cyclists going both ways.
Cycling Superhighway 9
is being designed.This will come sometime after the Olympics.
We would like to see Hammersmith Bridge and the short link to CSH9 included the project.
To deal with Hammersmith gyratory TfL have decided the route will go along the A4 pavement and cross to the south side of the gyratory by the Apollo. The surface level crossings of Fulham Palace rd are expected to be built this year. The route crosses to the Novotel and up Shortlands to join the Hammersmith rd. There are a large number of crossings on this mainly off-road route.
The route passes through the said gap and the island. This gap will not only have to cater for westbound cyclists intending to go down King Street, but also for those going over Hammersmith Bridge.
LBHF are designing these projects for TfL, and it is not clear if TfL are completely satisfied with the results so far.
OF OUR SURVEY ON CSH9 / Hammersmith gyratory [72Kb pdf file].
SUPER HIGHWAY 9 goes from Hounslow to Hyde Park Corner via Hammersmith.
Part 1 of the CRIM - an inspection of the route - led by many TfL Officers and Officers from Hounslow and Hammersmith on 17 March 2011, looked at the route through those boroughs. Tom Bogdanowicz and John Griffiths were present along with LCC representatives from Hounslow.

photo of part of the LBHF map used by TfL - that may not be the final
design - shows the intersection of Talgarth rd running E-W, and the bus
tracks from Fulham Palace rd running S-N, N-S.
On the day we cycled this preferred route, and also inspected the north side of the gyratory.
presented the results of our survey, with all the comments contained in
it to TfL. We also presented comments by Tom Bogdanowicz, John Giffiths,
Rik Andrew and Stephen Donnelly concerning the gyratory and CSH9.
Donnelly proposed a cycle track beside the kerb instead of shared use,
and leading through the crossing and pedestrian space to King street.
