Dear Sir or Madam,
The scheme is similar to proposals we consulted on in 2012 and will include the following measures:
Extending footways and traffic islands to reduce traffic speeds and provide more space for pedestrians
Raising zebra crossings to the same level as the footway on all four junction arms in order to reduce traffic speeds and increase safety
Providing narrower, better-defined lanes to discourage motorists from weaving between lanes on the roundabout
Following concerns expressed about the potential for conflict between pedestrians and cyclists during the 2012 consultation, we no longer intend to convert any footways to shared-use space as part of this scheme.
We do not expect the finished scheme to affect road user journey times through the area. There would be some short-term disruption during construction, although we will do our best to minimise this and will provide local people and road users with advance information to help them plan ahead.
For more details about the scheme, please visit tfl.gov.uk/lambeth-bridge-north. If you have any questions about the scheme, please email STEngagement@tfl.gov.uk or get in touch with your usual TfL contact.
