Help make cycling in Ealing safer and easier

How easy is it to cycle in Ealing? Are there places you would cycle to if there was a safer, more convenient way to get there on a bike?

Whether you regularly cycle to work, use a bike for the school run or to pop to the local shops, or perhaps don’t cycle much at all just yet, please share your views about how the council can improve the network of cycling routes via this short survey.

Have your say on how you currently feel about cycling in the borough, how this could be improved and what the council could do to encourage you to cycle more.

You can use an interactive map to mark where you want to see improvements to the existing cycle routes and where you want to see new routes installed.

Our existing cycle routes are the network of roads that are the most convenient ways to navigate the borough by bike. The council has invested in these routes with upgrades, signage or safety measures. Some borough roads are too narrow for separated cycle lanes, so cycle routes can be on or off the road, separated from traffic or along quiet streets, and most are signposted.

Ealing Council leader, councillor Peter Mason said: “Our ambition is to boost the network of cycling routes across Ealing, allowing residents to cycle safely and confidently anywhere in the borough.

“As promised in our active travel charter, we will be taking decisions about local active travel projects in partnership with local people. Residents now have the opportunity to tell us which cycle routes in the borough need improving and where we should create new ones.”

Councillor Deirdre Costigan, deputy leader and cabinet member for climate action, added:

“We are working with partners such as Transport for London to improve cycle routes in Ealing, including investing half a million pounds in installing the next section of the Uxbridge Road cycle path, opening a brand new cycle lane in Greenford and installing a quietway on Boston Road, as well as upgrading cycle safety measures on many other back roads.

“We all know about the mental and physical health benefits that increasing cycling, walking and scooting can have, but getting on your bike also helps us to reduce dirty air from polluting vehicles in the borough. I am excited about hearing from local people about how we can help them cycle more safely and sustainably to more of the places they want to go.”

Have your say by 17 May 2023 and help the council deliver the right cycle routes across Ealing.
