Battersea Bridge Safety Scheme - Phase 2

Overview

Overview

Following a number of collisions, including the tragic death of a man crossing the northern junction of Battersea Bridge in early-2021, we have developed urgent plans to make this busy junction safer.

While we are not yet at the consultation stage with this scheme - we intend to consult at a later stage - we have set up this page to provide you with information on what has happened so far with the scheme, and our plans for engagement and consultation on future improvements. You can respond to our survey, register for scheme updates, and email us a question at haveyoursay@tfl.gov.uk.

What has happened so far?

In Phase 1 (2021) we built a brand-new signalised pedestrian crossing on the north side of Battersea Bridge to improve safety for people walking at this busy junction.

In Phase 2 we plan to make the rest of the junction safer.

This discussion is our first opportunity to share our plans for Phase 2 with you.

We plan to do further engagement and consultation on these plans later in 2022.

Construction is intended for the financial year 2023/24, though this is dependent on the Government providing long-term funding.

Why are these changes necessary?

Every death on London's streets is one too many, and we are committed to making London safer through the Mayor's Vision Zero programme. This aims to eradicate deaths and serious injuries on London's roads by 2041.

That is why we are developing plans to address safety issues at Battersea Bridge by introducing brand new crossings and better facilities for cyclists. You can look at a drawing of our proposed scheme , bus lane map and read a summary of the proposed changes in the 'Documents' section.

We are also developing plans for the south side of the bridge in Wandsworth and assessing what impacts and benefits they may have for this area. That assessment work is ongoing.

At this stage, we are asking for your initial thoughts on how you feel our plans will impact on safety. This is not a consultation.

What will happen next?

This summer, we will engage with local communities on both sides of the river about our plans. We will use this time to build a clear picture of the priorities of local people.

We will engage with local people and stakeholders in Kensington and Chelsea, and Wandsworth.

Following this summer’s engagement, we will use the feedback we receive to finalise our proposals before presenting them for consultation at a later stage. That consultation will be published on this page.
