Harrow Road Cycle Scheme

Closes 4 Mar 2021

Opened 4 Sep 2020

Overview

COVID-19 has disrupted our daily travel habits. As lockdown restrictions are eased, we want to support and encourage people to adopt greener, healthier, more active forms of transport. Brent has seen some highest numbers of Covid and parts of our borough have poor air quality along with some long term public health issues. We have developed a plan to introduce short, medium and longer-term improvements in the borough that we hope will support residents make different travel choices and become more active. One part of this is to create a temporary cycle route along A404 Harrow Road (from Wembley Triangle to A406 North Circular Road).

 

The temporary cycle route forms part of the Wembley to Willesden Healthy Streets Corridor which the Council had been considering before the pandemic but we have had to alter our immediate approach due to the changing circumstances. It is now proposed to progress a two-staged approach:-

  • Introduce a shorter temporary scheme on Harrow Road;
  • Continue to develop a longer term permanent scheme, subject to funding availability which will be informed through engaging with stakeholders and learning from the temporary scheme.

Why We Are Consulting

What is a Temporary Cycle Route?

 

The Harrow Road Temporary Cycle Route will use a combination of existing bus lanes and temporary materials such as flexible posts to create a continuous route for cyclists along part of the A404 Harrow Road (between Wembley Triangle and A406 North Circular Road). The scheme will improve safety and amenity for cyclists and provide a strong visual indicator of the separation of road space. Subject to funding, this route will be extended south of the A406 towards Harlesden later in the year.
