TfL would your views on proposals to return the current one way road system into two way roads to reduce the traffic dominance in the area. Cyclists and pedestrians would benefit from improved facilities, creating a more welcoming environment for all road users.
What changes have been proposed?
- Removing the existing one-way road system around the transport interchange (Parry Street, Wandsworth Road, Kennington Lane, South Lambeth Road) and turning these into two way roads

- Improving existing and providing new spaces for the public to enjoy
- Redesigning the public transport interchange, including a new central bus station

New public spaces
A number of new public spaces would be enhanced or created under the proposals, for local people, visitors and commuters to enjoy. This will include new lighting, wider pavements and tree planting on the affected roads.
There will also be a more generous public space at the heart of Vauxhall’s transport interchange and improved links to surrounding areas.

A new bus station will be necessary to complement the new road layout and cycling and pedestrian facilities. Consultation around this will begin in 2016.
