Answered By: 
The Mayor

The proposals for Nine Elms Lane and Battersea Park Road will help to reduce road danger and are aligned to my commitment to 'Vision Zero'. The plans currently include 23 new and improved crossing points for pedestrians, as well as dedicated segregation for cyclists.  The designs will be further refined following the recent public consultation, as per the public commitment made by my Walking and Cycling Commissioner. Responding to feedback will help to ensure that what is built is a safe, high quality cycle route that can be used by all Londoners to travel between Battersea and Vauxhall.
