Battersea Park Road walking and cycling changes

We have updated our consultation materials to more accurately reflect the removal of two parking bays which may not have been made clear enough in our original plans.

We have updated our consultation materials to more accurately reflect the removal of two parking bays which may not have been made clear enough in our original plans. One of these is close to Battersea Dogs Home and the other to Newton Preparatory School. An updated map clearly indicating this is now in the 'Documents' section of this website.

We have extended the consultation until 17 April 2022 in order to allow everyone the time and opportunity to consider the updated information and respond using the usual methods as below. We had planned to hold an online Q&A session in order to answer questions about the scheme, however, we received very few requests to attend the event. If you would like to attend such an event, please email haveyoursay@tfl.gov.uk and we will contact you with details.

Overview

We’re proposing to make a series of changes to help people choose to walk, cycle or use public transport on Battersea Park Road between the junction with Macduff Road and the Duchess Rail Bridge (just east of Battersea Dogs and Cats Home). This section includes the junctions with Queenstown Road and Prince of Wales Drive. These changes are part of a wider project first consulted on in 2017 that has already transformed Nine Elms Lane and would connect with CS8 to form a sustainable transport spine to Wandsworth Town.

These changes to the road are part of an infrastructure package to support the area as it grows, enhance safety and improve the area for people who live, work and visit.

We’d like to know your thoughts on our proposals and are holding a six week consultation. You can reply by completing our survey, which should take no more than 5-10 minutes to complete.

If you prefer, you can email your comments to haveyoursay@tfl.gov.uk (with the subject Battersea Park Road).

Or write to us at FREEPOST TFL HAVE YOUR SAY (Battersea Park Road) - no stamp is needed.

The closing date for comments is Sunday 17 April 2022.

Summary of changes

We’ve described the changes in more detail but in summary we are proposing to make the following changes:

  • Improved cycle provision:
    • protected cycle tracks with physical segregation - this is in response to feedback on the 2017 designs which had mandatory cycle lanes with no physical protection
    • a bus stop bypass on the eastbound approach to the junction with Queenstown Road
  • At Queenstown Road junction there would be:
    • early release on all arms of the junction, so cyclists can move off before general traffic
    • dedicated cycle lanes guiding cyclists across the junction going both east and west
    • a cycle gate for eastbound cyclists - this is a separate waiting area for cyclists at a signal which turns green when other traffic is stopped by a red light, allowing cyclists to approach the main stop line safely
  • 20mph along the whole of Battersea Park Road
  • Improved ‘straight across’ pedestrian crossings at the junctions with Queenstown Road and Prince of Wales Drive
  • Two bus stops serving Battersea Park station would be moved and have new bus shelters featuring real time bus information
  • One-way entry to Meath Street (from Battersea Park Road)
