Hayes Town Centre - major schemes project

Improving the look and feel of Hayes Town Centre.

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 concluding

Crown Close landscaping - completing spring 2018

Crown Close has undergone a major upgrade, with new paving, street lighting and 30 minute free 'Stop & Shop' parking. To complement these improvements some 40 new street trees will be planted to enhance the street scene further. This work is expected to complete spring 2018.

Carriageway resurfacing - completing spring 2018

To complete the improvements, carriageway resurfacing will be carried out in Botwell Lane, Coldharbour Lane, Crown Close, Pump Lane, Station Road and at the newly created roundabouts. The work will be completed at night to minimise disruption. All resurfacing is expected to complete spring 2018.

Hayes Gold Disc Hayes Gold Disc

On Friday 16 June, a new landmark feature, reflecting the rich musical heritage of Hayes and the historic Old Vinyl Factory site was opened. In collaboration with architects, The Decorators, the council has replaced the bandstand with a modern gold disc-shaped canopy, which will act as a recreational area with seating for the Hayes community and visitors. Uplighters have also been set within the structure to create a warm glow and highlight the canopy's decorative features at night.

The canopy was created by The Whitewall Company, with part of the manufacturing taking place locally in Hayes at Coyle Owen Anodising Ltd.

Additional exciting improvements

As part of the ongoing improvements within the town centre, the council plan to install a boardwalk extension for Botwell Bridge. With the arrival of Crossrail from December 2019 and the significant regeneration underway, such as the Old Vinyl Factory, connecting the station area to the town centre is vital in attracting residents, workers and visitors to the services on offer. 

The boardwalk pedestrian bridge will create a cycle lane and an attractive walkway with open views of the Grand Union canal.

The Dept for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA) plan [342KB] and public notice [342KB] can be downloaded and viewed on our website.

The council will also be carrying out public realm enhancements  to the area around the new Crossrail station building, making a distinctive gateway to Hayes. The work will complement the town centre improvements and will focus on pedestrian and transport access, landscaping, lighting, signage and street furniture. The subway connecting the station to Blyth Road will also be revitalised.
