Improvements to Lambeth Bridge Westminster roundabout

Transport for London are planning safety improvements at Lambeth Bridge's western roundabout.

The proposals include:
·         Extending footways and traffic islands to reduce traffic speeds and provide more space for pedestrians
·         Raising the zebra crossings to the same level as the footway on all four roundabout approaches in order to reduce traffic speeds
·         Converting the footway around the roundabout to ‘shared space’ for pedestrians and cyclists, meaning it can be used by those cyclists who prefer to use the zebra crossings instead of the roundabout

You can also view and respond to the proposals at TfL's website. the deadline for comments is Friday 26 October.

The improvements are part of TfL’s Better Junctions programme.

Whilst supporting the proposals, your local Labour councillors have also asked TfL to repave the footways over the bridge, which are dangerously uneven.
