Answered By:

A traffic lane has been maintained to allow general traffic and cyclists to travel westbound on Nine Elms Lane. The lane is wide enough to accommodate both vehicles and cyclists.

The developer's contractor has committed that the traffic management will be reviewed frequently to ensure the arrangement is maintained. TfL officers undertake regular site visits to check this is in place and the traffic management is operating correctly. Alternative routes for pedestrians are available at all times and are clearly signed. Currently pedestrians are directed to the footway on the north side while the closure of the south side footway is in place.
