Hayes Town Centre - major schemes project

Improving the look and feel of Hayes Town Centre. Work started February 2015 and will be completed in summer 2017.

We all want the town centre to be successful and these improvements will help to achieve that by making it more attractive to shoppers and visitors, allowing traffic to flow freely and improving access to public transport, which along with Crossrail services and extensive wider regeneration will help deliver economic growth, jobs and thriving economy for Hayes.

Final Phase Improvements Underway

Crown Close completing Spring 2017

New pavements will be created on both sides of the road and this alongside bright street lighting and extensive landscaping, including removing the overgrown shrubbery, will create a much improved and safer area for pedestrians to walk and for motorists to take advantage of the new 30 minutes free "Stop and Shop" parking. The works will be phased on each side of the road enabling northbound bus services to continue using the route until Station Road is fully reopened at the final stage of the scheme.

Additional street lighting improvements completing Spring 2017

Careful budget management has meant that project contingency can start to be released to achieve wider town centre improvements. Feedback from the police has confirmed that the new brighter street lighting in Coldharbour lane has made a considerable difference to community safety. This lighting will be extended including ensuring high quality lighting connecting to the off street public car parks serving the town centre.

Botwell Lane/ Station Road Junction completing Summer 2017

The main works here will include dismantling the existing brick planters to create a new roundabout configuration and safer places for pedestrians to cross. This will include countdown timers to give pedestrians a clear indication of how much time they have to safely cross the road. 

Made in Hayes new Landmark features now being created Hayes Town Centre

The first Hayes Town Centre bulletin published in the spring 2015 announced the council's collaboration with contemporary architects The Decorators to create a new and exciting 'wow' factor for the town centre associated with the rich musical heritage of Hayes.

Ideas for a disc shaped canopy to replace the bandstand which needs to be removed, were revealed in the summer 2015 bulletin and people who live and work in Hayes were invited to contribute their memories of the former EMI record company site.

We can now update you that the disc and seating are in production along with a sound clock to be located closer to Hayes & Harlington Station, whose chime will be unique to Hayes. The artist's impression gives a lifelike representation of how the disc feature will provide for seating as well as more playful aspects for younger residents. This is expected to be unveiled in June 2017.

Phase One Coldharbour Lane improvements completed Coldharbour Lane After

The work in Coldharbour Lane has now largely completed. The phase one work demonstrates the new paving and cycle layout, parallel parking bay arrangement and modern street lighting which all the town centre will benefit from. Traffic flow is already benefiting from the removal of the raised central reservation enabling motorists to easily pass stationary vehicles and buses. All trees have now been planted with species selected to be able to thrive within a busy town centre environment. 

Parking in Hayes Town Centre

Demand for on-street parking in the Station Road area at the heart of Hayes Town Centre is high. What is not clear from the existing parking signage is that there are six car parks, providing over 450 spaces within an easy 5 minute walk to the main shopping area. We know from a recent parking capacity survey that many of these spaces are not being used.

The Hayes Town Centre Parking Map [1Mb] shows the location of all car parks and additional on-street parking within the town centre and the number of spaces available. Other than the Iceland car park, which is free to customers spending over £5, parking provided is free for the first 30 minutes and preferential parking rates for Hillingdon First cardholders. Note: Remember to always display a ticket including 30 minutes free parking.
