We asked

If the Council should revoke two-way cycling in one-way streets in Gilston Road between Priory Walk and Fulham Road

You said

The Council received 51 representations objecting to the revocation and 38 in support, with a further response making comments without objecting or supporting. These are reproduced in full in Appendix 1 of the Decision Report, and are summarised thematically in the report, with officer commentary.

We did

The Director of Transport and Regulatory Services has decided that the revocation should NOT proceed, meaning that two-way cycling would be retained in the section of Gilston Road between Priory Walk and Fulham Road.

Results updated 14 Dec 2023



In October 2022, the Council made a traffic order that exempted cycles from part of the one-way traffic order in Gilston Road, between its junctions with Priory Walk and Park Walk. After this order was made, the Council received representations from a residents’ association about the safety of the proposal.

At the request of the Lead Member for Planning, Place and Environment, the Council no longer wishes to implement this scheme. It was agreed that an alternative enhanced level of provision be included in a proposed upgrade to Hollywood Road currently in development.
