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 Nine Elms London website.
The programme is being developed with the borough of Wandsworth, Nine Elms Vauxhall Partnership and developers. Our proposed changes would support major developments in the area - improving conditions for pedestrians, cyclists and bus passengers, as well as making the area more pleasant and characterful.
We will coordinate with these schemes, developers along the corridor and other construction works to minimise the impact of the work.
We are working in three stages:
The first stage (now complete) involved installing 40+ temporary signs highlighting the presence of cyclists and large number of HGVs in the area while construction is going on. Alternative cycling routes were shown.
Interim works improved facilities for cyclists and pedestrians while also upgrading roads and public areas.
We propose a complete redesign of the road layout on Nine Elms Lane and the eastern part of Battersea Park Road to improve it for pedestrians, cyclists and bus users. It will also allow for the future growth of the area.
The new cycle route will feature:
Work on the scheme is likely to take place between 2020 and 2021.
The consultation report is now available on the Nine Elms consultation page.
We plan to publish a detailed response to the issues raised during consultation, as well as a decision on how to proceed, in late summer/early autumn 2018.
