COVID-19 infrastructure changes make cycling and walking to school easier and safer



There are several changes taking place across the borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, in particular to cycling and walking to school routes. Please see below and click the link for further information on how your borough is being improved.

Reallocated spaces

In our town centres, road space has been reallocated so that pedestrians and cyclists can feel safer visiting shops and essential services, or just passing through. The wider pavements will have more space for social distancing.

Fully segregated cycle lanes have also been introduced along King Street, Hammersmith Road and around the gyratory in Hammersmith, as well as on Uxbridge Road and alongside Shepherds Bush Green. These protect riders by keeping them separated from motor vehicles.

Car-free school runs

All of H&F’s schools have travel plans which encourage active, sustainable travel like walking, cycling and scooting.

The council has also been working closely with 13 schools across the borough explore the possibility of introducing new School Streets this September. These schemes stop cars from using roads immediately outside the school during the peak drop-off and pick-up times.

The schools involved are:


  • Holy Cross Primary School
  • Queen’s Manor School and Special Needs Unit
  • Sir John Lillie Primary School


  • Brackenbury Primary School
  • Earl’s Court Free School Primary
  • Ecole Francaise de Londres Jacques Prevert
  • Melcombe Primary School
  • St Paul’s Primary School
  • St Peter’s Primary School
  • West London Free School Primary

Shepherds Bush

  • Miles Coverdale Primary School
  • St Stephen’s Primary School
  • Wendell Park Primary School
