Proposals have been developed by Transport for London (TfL) and Lambeth Council to create a new greener public space and an upgraded bus station by the removal of Waterloo roundabout and a wider pavement on Waterloo Road to improve the area and encourage more people to walk and cycle and use public transport. We are proposing:
The proposals form part of the Mayor of London’s plan for Healthy Streets – a long-term vision to encourage more Londoners to walk and cycle and use public transport by making London’s streets healthier, safer and more welcoming.
We expect the proposals would result in changes, both positive and negative, to journey times for motorists, bus passengers and cyclists once complete. You can see our plans and have your say on the website at tfl.gov.uk/waterloo-roundabout or at one of these events:
Subject to the outcome of this consultation, should we proceed with these proposals, we would look to start construction in late 2019 for a period of up to 18 months. We are aware that there is a lot of construction in the Waterloo area and these changes are likely to cause further disruption. TfL and Lambeth Council would work with the local community, SBEG, WeAreWaterloo and surrounding developers to coordinate works and deliveries to minimise this impact as far as possible.
