Safety is to be improved on the section of the Great West Road where Brentford cyclist Michael Fletcher was killed last year, Mayor Boris Johnson has revealed.
The promise was contained in a response to questions from Caroline Pigeon, transport spokeswoman for the London Assembly Lib Dem group, about Hounslow's roads and cycle safety.
Well-known community figure Michael Fletcher, 60, of Augustus Close, Brentford Dock, was killed on the busy road at the junction with Windmill Road on November 26 last year.
Mr Johnson said Transport for London is set to launch two schemes in the Hounslow area within the next few months.
The first, due to start next month, will improve the 'continuity and condition' of the cycle paths on the A4 between Boston Manor Road and Chiswick roundabout.
The second will see the installation of a Toucan crossing on the west side of the junction where the A4 meets Syon Lane.
"In addition to this, TfL will investigate improved cycling conditions on the A4 between Syon Lane and Boston Manor Road in the new financial year," said the Tory Mayor.
Ms Pigeon also pushed the mayor for answers about the possibility of giving the cycle route the right of way over roads joining the A4 between Chiswick and Hounslow.
He answered: "As part of the cycle highways initiative, TfL will investigate the potential to trial new traffic arrangements and priorities, which go beyond what is permitted within the current regulations.
"This will of course, require the agreement and support of the Department for Transport.
Matt Harmer (pictured), Labour ward councillor in Brentford has campaigned tirelessly for improvements to Hounslow's cycle paths and launched a petition.
"I'm please to see the positive nature of the Mayor's answer but we need some plans and we need them as soon as possible," he said.
"That is what the people of Brentford are looking for."
