Covering the entire length of the M4/A4 western “cut out” of the ULEZ October 2021 expansion (‘the unprotected banana’, and areas covered by the Chiswick and Hammersmith Air Quality Focus Areas, the hedge would run along both sides of the A4 from Chiswick roundabout to the Hammersmith flyover.
The Great West Hedge will run along a section of A4 which neighbours onto:
- 8 schools — Falcons Pre-Prep, St Mary’s R C Primary School, The William Hogarth School, St Peter’s C of E Primary School, Latymer Upper School, Latymer Prep School, West London Free School, Le Herrisson School
- 6 nurseries — Elmwood Montessori School, Beanstalk Montessori Nursery, Buttercups Nursery, Devonshire Day Nursery, Heathfield House Early Years, Willows Pre-School
- 6 parks — Homefield Rec, north and south, Furnivall Gardens, Harvard Hill Park, Verbena gardens, Chiswick House and Gardens
We think there are lots more opportunities for adding green infrastructure (hedges, trees, plantings, etc) along the road. We’ve started marking on the map below places where we think more trees & wildflowers could be grown.
