Question

Thank you for your answers to my questions 2015/1506  and 2015/1510. Given the rejection of the Go Dutch plan for the roundabout due to its impact on traffic congestion and the rejection of the interim solution, can you outline all the subsequent meetings and actions taken to urgently come up with a plan to make this junction safe?

Answer for Lambeth Bridge North Roundabout

Answered By: 
The Mayor

TfL is developing a number of design options to improve the safety of cyclists at the Lambeth Bridge North Roundabout, including both removal and retention of the existing roundabout operation.  We are also reviewing the connection between Lambeth Bridge North and South roundabouts, to ensure that Lambeth Bridge is safer for cyclists to use. 

Proposals for the roundabout are currently only at feasibility stage so we have not been able to share these more widely at this time. However once we have identified a potentially workable solution, this will be tabled at TfL's Design Review Group. This includes involvement from various key stakeholders including the Met Police, boroughs, LCC, Living Streets, Road Peace amongst others and we hope to undertaken this engagement in early Autumn.

Subject to agreement on a workable solution from all relevant parties, a public consultation is planned by the end of this year.
