Find out about the council’s plans to improve streets throughout the borough.

We regularly undertake works to improve the condition of footways and carriageways within the borough. By undertaking planned improvement works, we will improve the condition of Lambeth’s roads and footpaths. In this guide you will find the list of works being undertaken, as well as answers to some frequently asked questions.

3. More information on this project

How are the roads chosen?

An extensive survey of all of the roads in the borough is undertaken. Engineers assess not only the condition of the road but also their proximity to important local services like schools, hospitals or places of worship. Each road is given a score and those which score highest are actioned.

Why wasn’t my road chosen?

Each road is given careful consideration. However, we need to prioritise the roads and footpaths which have the greatest need for resurfacing. It might be the case that your road will be chosen in the next year’s programme.

How can I nominate a road?

You can nominate roads via your local Councillor. To find your local councillor see Find your local councillor.

Can I get involved?

Yes you can. Although the roads have been selected, if you think there is more we could do then register in Section 2 and send us a message. You can also take advantage of Lambeth Council's schemes for residents:

How to become a street champion!

How to bring your neighbours together to improve your street.

How to report a pothole .

How will you let me know about the works?

Residents in affected roads will be notified with a letter in advance of any works due to take place. The contractor who will be undertaking the work will also send out a letter ten days in advance that will advise you if you need to do anything.

Will my road be closed during the works?

This depends on a few factors like the size of the road, and the type of work being undertaken. If your road will need to be closed, then you will be notified in advance. Closed roads will be clearly signed, and all efforts will be made to minimise disruption.

Will the bus services be affected?

In all cases we will try to keep roads open during the works so there should be no change to the bus services. However, if a road has to be closed or a bus stop moved, then Lambeth Council will work closely with TFL to minimise disruption.
