More road changes around Lambeth
Gas main replacement work is going to result in part of Lambeth High Street being closed for up to three months. The section between Black Prince Road and Whitgift Street will be affected.
The section of Newport Street between Old Paradise Street and Whitgift Street continues to be closed because of building work.
That means traffic will have to go via Lambeth High Street, Whitgift Street and Newport Street to travel north/south.
Officers have also informed us that the developer of 20 Albert Embankment (Hampton House) has applied to vary the kerbline of the pavement and permanently 'stop up' part of the wide pavement there, in order for the building there to be constructed. The plan below shows how the pavement will be squared off and narrowed to accommodate the new buildings.
