Cycle Superhighway 8 improvements

To improve road safety for all road users at the junction, we will:

  • Provide a new two-stage right turn facility for cyclists on CS8 turning right into Grosvenor Road from Chelsea Bridge
  • Extend the mandatory cycle lanes on Grosvenor Road
  • Improve the road surface of the entire junction

See our live traffic news page for more information on how your journey may be affected.

This work is part of our Road Modernisation Plan.

When will the work take place?

Construction work for these cycling improvements will run from February until summer 2016.

The improvements

We work closely with cycling, road user and community groups and London boroughs to review and improve cycling provision on CS8, first launched in 2011.

We're now introducing a number of improvements at the junction to improve safety, including:

  • A two-stage right turn to allow cyclists to turn right more safely from Chelsea Bridge into Grosvenor Road. This new safety feature will remove the need for right-turning cyclists to move across two lanes of traffic on Chelsea Bridge and allow them to complete their right turn in two easier stages.

  • New mandatory cycle lanes on both the approach to and exit from Grosvenor Road
  • An improved road surface across the entire junction between Chelsea Bridge and Chelsea Embankment/Grosvenor Road that will provide a smoother surface for all road users


We consulted on the proposals for improvements to CS8 in February and March of 2015. For details about the consultation and to read the consultation report, go to the Chelsea Bridge consultation page.
