A404 Unhealthy Streets | Brent Cycling Campaign

Transport for London (TfL) and the London Borough of Brent are working together to develop Healthy Streets improvements between Wembley and Willesden Junction, including the town centres of Wembley, Stonebridge and Harlesden. These changes would make it easier and safer to walk, cycle, and use public transport in the area. Making the area safer, greener and reducing car travel. Jump to our FAQs below (broadly based on TfL content).

The area along the A404 that will benefit from these Healthy Streets improvements

In this area, every year, people are seriously injured, some fatally. This cannot go on, and the Mayor has set a target to reduce the number of deaths and serious injuries on London’s roads to zero by 2041. We are inviting local people to tell us how they currently travel around the area and what changes they would like us to make that would help and encourage more people to choose active travel options in the community.

This first period of engagement is running until Sunday 22 March and early involvement in the process is very important as design will be built on the feedback received from local people.

You can arrange a feedback session with TfL’s Community & Partnerships Specialist, Transport Strategy & Planning, Julie Camacho on wembleywillesdenjct@tfl.gov.uk, and register your comments and suggestions by responding online by Sunday 22 March.

Healthy Streets FAQs

According to the latest medical advice, a person who is active every day is less likely to suffer from heart disease, depression and many other debilitating or harmful illnesses. Walking and cycling is the easiest way to lead a more active lifestyle and contributes to the Mayor’s target to ensure all Londoners do at least 20 minutes of activity daily by 2041, and also helps to meet the pressing need to improve the quality of London’s air.

Poor air quality affects the health of everyone and Brent Council is committed to taking action to meet targets to reduce air pollution in the borough. In response to this clear evidence, TfL has adopted the Healthy Streets Approach to managing London’s transport network. This aims to improve air quality, reduce the dominance of motorised traffic and make London a greener, healthier and more pleasant place to live. It does so by prioritising evidence-based measures which would encourage people to walk, cycle or use public transport.

    I cycle regularly between Willesden and Putney. This takes me down scubs lane, past wood lane with cars and ubers pullin into both the new BBC television centre development and expansion of westfield, then through Sheppards Bush -traveling north in four lanes of traffic and cars converging from the west at the lights on the south side of Sheppards Bush. Then round Hammersmith roundabout again no segregation from four lanes of traffic. Then south past the hospital (more ubers pulling into the hospital) then finally down fullham palace road – usually not too stressfull
