The protection of all road users is paramount to me and TfL has been liaising with Wandsworth Council to ensure this junction is appropriately enforced and that the illegal left turn movement is clearly visible.

Discussions between TfL and Wandsworth over the possibility of camera sharing to enforce the illegal left turn are ongoing and subject to a number of technical and legal considerations.
