The Grove Park Group: consideration of the West London Interchange at Chiswick and likely physical impact on the Grove Park area

An astoundingly accomplished submission of evidence to the GLDP inquiry that sets out the case of the Grove Park Group: essentially that the Ringways (and in particular the West London Interchange where M3, M4 and Ringway 2 were to meet) would destroy most of their suburb. They surveyed the area that the interchange would take up and became untaught experts in the still-emerging science of noise profiling to produce a six-sheet plan of Grove Park and how it would be affected. This file contains a photocopy of those six sheets. By their reckoning 68% of the built-up area would be rendered uninhabitable by the proposals for the West London Interchange.
This file exists in virtually the same format at Chiswick Library.
Contents of note
- Junction layouts for all three junctions, not always perfectly matching GLC proposals and perhaps drawn from draft proposals instead.
- Rather shocking shaded area showing noise contours for the new roads.
