Westminster Bridge, Westminster Bridge Road, Lambeth Palace Road, Addington Street and York Road are well-used cycling routes which pass through the roundabout formed by Westminster Bridge Road, Addington Street and York Road.
The roundabout is currently dominated by motor traffic and can be an intimidating place to walk and cycle. We propose giving cyclists dedicated space and separate cycle signals at junctions.
Our proposals would also improve the area for pedestrians. These include:
This work is part of the Road Modernisation Plan.
The public consultation for this project closed in December 2015, with nearly three-quarters of respondents supporting the proposals.
After considering all of the responses, we now plan to go ahead with the layout changes which include 1.8 metres of segregated cycle tracks on Westminster Bridge. Construction work is expected to begin in spring 2017 and finish in early 2018.Find more on our proposals, including the consultation report, on the Westminster Bridge South consultation page.
