Station Road / Sheepcote Road is a key bus route and desire line for cycling which links Northwick Park, Harrow town centre and Wealdstone. Segregated cycling facilities are essential along this route.
Space for cycling can be created by converting one or two of the motor vehicle lanes on the wide section of Station Road, and reorganising the road space in other sections (removing the central islands, removing some parking spaces and narrowing the footway slightly).
We have suggested a two-way track on the west side of the road because the road is wider at the location of bus stops, to enable creation of bus stop bypasses. Also, it will link up with the existing two-way cycle track along George Gange Way. The railway bridge is wide enough for a cycle track, but a new bridge will be required over Marlborough Road.
