CS9 Will Reduce Traffic Speed to 4 MPH on Hammersmith Road

Cycle Superhighway 9 (CS9 or CW9 as it now is) will reduce traffic speed on the Hammersmith Road to 4 mph (6 km/h) according to a report on the environmental impact of the scheme issued by TfL. What the report says is that “The change in road layout, removal of a bus lane and decrease in predicted average speeds from 23 km/h to 6 km/h at R57 (Hammersmith Road) offsets the predicted reduction in traffic at this location”. It also suggests there is no significant benefit in air pollution.

This is yet another example of how damaging cycle schemes are to the road network and the enormous waste of money that is being spent on them.
