The council is working with Transport for London on a number of major interventions to the highway network that TfL controls.

Information on these projects is provided in Lambeth’s adopted LIP with a further update provided here. Figure 1 on page 5 of the Implementation Plan PDF shows the location of major highway schemes in the borough.

Vauxhall Cross

Removal of Vauxhall gyratory to be replaced with two-way working and construction of a new bus station, canopy and public square. Critical enabling project to improve access to the VNEB growth area, reinforce the area as a District Centre and transform conditions for walking and cycling for both local and strategic trips. Reduces severance and improves the local environment, including air quality. TfL Business Plan funding of £40.5M. Delivery from 20/21 to 24/25.

Waterloo City Hub (IMAX)

Reconfiguration of the Waterloo Road/York Road/Stamford Street/Waterloo Bridge junction to allow for new open space, bus station, direct links from Waterloo station to the South Bank. Critical enabling project to develop Waterloo as Business District and overcome historic issues of severance and poor public realm. TfL Business Plan funding of £20.6M. Delivery 20/21 – 21/2.

Lambeth Bridge South

Conversion of roundabout to a four way junction with segregated cycle lanes and increased pedestrian space. Identified as a high priority junction for collision reduction and being developed in tandem with junction improvements in Westminster on the other side of the bridge. TfL Business Plan allocation for both junctions totalling £15.3M with delivery expected 21/22 – 22/23.

Streatham Hill

Delivery of public realm, walking and cycling improvements on the A23 Streatham Hill between Streatham Hill station and the South Circular. Streatham Hill suffers from high traffic volumes and speeds, traffic collisions, severance, poor air quality and environment generally, with no suitable provision for cycling. The A23 is also identified by TfL as a key future cycle demand route. Public consultation expected in January 2020 with delivery by 21/22. Represents an investment of £5M+.

Tulse Hill

Development work continues to deliver a transformative project to address the severance caused by the gyratory system where the South Circular Road meets Norwood Road. A proposal to introduce two-way working has been developed with local stakeholders and is currently being assessed by TfL. Funding to implement the scheme was not included in the most recent TfL Business Plan.

Other schemes

In addition to the above projects the council continues to work with TfL to bring forward improvements at other locations on their road network, for example safety improvements at Clapham High Street and promoting improvements to the Durham Street one-way system and on Albert Embankment. Lambeth is also working with TfL towards the introduction of 20mph speed limits across their network.
