Feltham Improvement Works
Keeping You Moving: Feltham Town Centre Traffic and Transport Improvements
From 29 May 2018, major improvement works are taking place across Feltham town centre. In order to carry out these works, Hounslow Road - between New Road and Hanworth Road - will be closed to both traffic and pedestrians for 10 months from Tuesday, 29th May 2018.
This temporary closure will allow Hounslow Council to widen Hounslow Road to provide a left turn into Hanworth Road and new bus stops, widen the highway over Longford River, install traffic signals at the New Road junction with Hounslow Road, and for improvements to be made at the Hanworth Road/Hounslow Road junction. Once the road has reopened, Network Rail will permanent close the level crossing, extend the platforms at Feltham station and construct a new shared bridge for pedestrians and cyclists.
All this work will improve road safety and bus journey times through the area. Closing the level crossing and extending the platforms will enable the 10-carriage trains to open all doors at Feltham.
Feltham will be open for business throughout these works, with pedestrian access to all shops/businesses maintained.
Top active travel tips for avoiding congestion in and around Feltham during the improvement works…
1.) It is expected that roads around Feltham Town Centre will be busier than usual during the improvement works. Instead of driving, try walking or cycling into town to beat the traffic!
2.) On the bus? If you can, try getting off at a stop earlier than your destination - not only are short walking trips great for your health, it also means that you may not have to sit in traffic getting into Feltham Town. Follow @TFLBusalerts for up to date information about the buses, or use the TfL Facebook Travelbot to check bus arrival times.
3.) Why not avoid the centre of Feltham and use alternative routes if your journey does not start or end in Feltham town centre?
4.) If you are unable to travel without a car, try to avoid passing through Feltham during peak hours (including Saturdays between 10 am and 4 pm).
