Director of Regeneration, Economic Development and Environment, London Borough of Hounslow
Hounslow is an obvious location for major UK corporate and for headquarters for European and International firms. Its transport connectivity was rated in the top 20% of all Local Authorities in 2013 (Local Futures Group 2013). Over the past decade Hounslow has worked with partner agencies to improve transport provision and connections. These include:
- One of only three local authorities to benefit from a highway maintenance PFI, which includes a £100m investment in our roads between 2013 and 2019.
-Cycling and walking improvements coupled with public realm enhancements have been progressed across the borough, including in Hounslow Town Centre
- A 25% increase in capacity on South West Trains routes through the borough relieving congestion between our town centres and into London
- A number of bus routes have benefited from frequency and capacity, particularly those serving growth areas such as Brentford
- Every resident is within a mile of a publicly available electrical vehicle charging point, with our further growth planned to the car club network across the borough
