Phillimore Walk Cycling Access

Closed 6 Mar 2022

Opened 24 Jan 2022

Overview

Enabling more cycling is one of the Council’s borough transport objectives. We are also concerned about the impacts of poor air quality on our residents, and believe making cycle trips safer is part of the solution to providing alternatives to motor vehicle trips. We want to make sure cycling is safer, easier, attractive and inclusive for all.

We are consulting on providing improved cycle access between Phillimore Walk and the Holland Walk cycle and pedestrian path. Please read the following information carefully before filling in our consultation survey no later than 6 March 2022.

Phillimore Walk is predominantly one-way westbound for motor traffic but since 2016 it has been legal to cycle in both directions along the full length of the road. At the western end, Phillimore Walk connects to the established cycle path that connects Holland Park Avenue to Kensington High Street. The Council wishes to improve the quality of that link to make it easier to use.

Why your views matter

We're interested in your views on our proposals.

The proposals involve removing just over three metres of the section of wall to the western end of Phillimore Walk which currently separates Phillimore Walk from the Holland Walk cycle and foot path. Motor vehicles would not be permitted access. A bollard would be introduced to the centre of the removed section, providing 1.5 metres of space to each side for all types of bicycle including cargo and adapted bikes. A small section of grass of approximately 18m² (193.75 ft²) behind the wall between Phillimore Walk and Holland Walk would be removed and resurfaced to connect to the existing cycle and foot path, providing a fully paved connection for use by bicycles and pedestrians. If the proposals went ahead following consultation, the existing surfacing would be resurfaced to match the new section of paving. A drawing of the proposals is supplied below.
