The Proposals

Lambeth is committed to creating streets and neighbourhoods that are healthy, safe, inclusive, pleasant, climate resilient, and that support active travel. Enabling the community to walk, wheel and cycle more benefits public health and wellbeing. 

We want to make Waterloo a world class place for local residents, businesses and visitors to travel through or spend time in.

We are currently engaging on:

The Cut and Greet Street Traffic Restrictions

The interventions were introduced during the Covid-19 Emergency period by Lambeth and Southwark Councils, and retained thereafter as an Experimental Traffic Order.

As part of these interventions:

  • through traffic was blocked from travelling through Greet Street and The Cut
  • several loading and parking bays were converted to pavement extensions, which created more space for walking and commercial seating
  • The Council is considering whether or not to make the traffic filters at The Cut and Greet Street permanent.

Webber Street Healthy Street Improvements

We are proposing to:

  • stop through traffic that travels between Baylis Road and Blackfriars Road, avoiding St. George’s Circus in the process
  • create a section of one-way between Ufford Street and Chaplin Close. 
  • improve the C10 (cycleway 10) on Webber Street by reducing traffic volumes and adding space for contraflow cycling

Ufford Street Healthy Street Improvements

The traffic filter proposed aims to:

  • stop through traffic between Baylis Road and Waterloo Road in the west, and Blackfriars Road in the east
  • add greening to make the area more climate resilient 
  • allow for a “local access” exemption to local residents, commercial properties and the Premier Inn

The Cut Parklets

We have reallocated several parking bays to other uses, including cycle parking, greening, public seating and space for commercial seating. These parklets were also installed as trials and we want to hear your feedback on whether to make them permanent or not, and if other functions should be introduced.

End of the engagement

The engagement report showcasing the analysis of all input will be published at the end of June.
