Walking and cycling changes between Chelsea Bridge and Wandsworth town centre

We have made some changes to Cycle Superhighway 8 between Chelsea Bridge and Wandsworth town centre as part of an experiment. We hope these changes will help people who can to walk and cycle more, to help maintain space on public transport for those who need it and help people to avoid people using their cars as much as possible.

We want to know your views and experiences of these changes. We are holding a six-month consultation on the experimental scheme. You can reply in two ways:

We want to know your views and experiences of these changes. We are holding a six-month consultation on the experimental scheme. You can reply in two ways:

  • The Map, where you can quickly pin your comment about a specific location. We are trialling this tool on this consultation, and covers just the section along Battersea Park Road between Macduff Road and Latchmere Road
  • A Survey, where we will ask about your experiences of the scheme and the impact you feel it has had. This will take 10-15 minutes to complete

We also want this consultation to be accessible to everyone. There is an Easy Read version of our materials in the ‘Documents’ section. There is also an Easy Read version of our survey. In the bottom right-hand corner, there is also a British Sign Language video which includes audio.

The purpose of this scheme

Enabling walking and cycling

Cycle Superhighway 8 (CS8) is in the top 5% of routes in London with the greatest potential for people to cycle, but only if we help them to do so by providing new cycle lanes and other infrastructure. Doing so will help to take pressure off buses and trains so that key workers, and people who cannot walk or cycle can travel more easily.

Keeping people safe

We also need to take action to prevent people walking and cycling from being hurt and injured: in the last three years up to November 2019 64 people cycling and 54 people walking were hurt in collisions involving traffic on this route. These changes build on a series of temporary improvements we made to the northern section of CS8 last Spring. The upgraded CS8 will also connect to existing cycling facilities on Queenstown Road and Garratt Lane.

A map giving an overview of the changes we will be making can be found in the 'Documents' section.

We recently briefed local Councillors and stakeholders about the temporary measures we are introducing. The slide deck we used to explain the changes and the reasons for them can be found in the 'Documents' section.
