Nine Elms is in a designated regeneration area with approximately 40 major development sites aimed at constructing 20,000 new homes and creating 25,000 new jobs between now and 2030. Find out more on the Vauxhall, Nine Elms and Battersea Opportunity Area page on London.gov.uk.
The programme is being developed in partnership with the borough of Wandsworth, Nine Elms Vauxhall Partnership and developers. Other schemes in the area include the Northern line extension.
We are doing work in three stages:
The first stage involved installing 40+ advisory signs in the short term to highlight the presence of cyclists and high volumes of HGVs while construction is going on in the area. Alternative cycling routes will be indicated.
Interim works will likely involve measures to improve facilities for pedestrians and cyclists, and to improve surrounding public spaces, and would be complete in 2017.
Following redevelopment of the area, we will make plans for further improvements to include new carriageways and footways, new and improved bus and cycle facilities as well as public spaces.
A public consultation on this stage of the scheme is proposed for spring 2017. The scheme is likely to be delivered between 2019 and 2020.
