Vauxhall Cross consultation deadline extended to 2 January 2015

Transport for London have extended the deadline for responses to the Vauxhall Cross consultation from 14 December 2014 to 2 January 2015 to allow as many people as possible to respond - please tell TfL we need Space For Cycling in Vauxhall Cross 

Transport for London have released their initial proposals which aim to transform Vauxhall Cross making the whole area more cycle friendly and therefore more people friendly.

TfL are proposing to end the one-way system at Vauxhall and the surrounding roads as well as bring in improvements to the bus, rail and tube station and create a new public space around Vauxhall station. The effect, it is hoped, will be to make Vauxhall more than just a transport interchange.

These plans, developed with Lambeth, follow on from the 2012 Lambeth supplementary planning document (to which Lambeth Cyclists responded). and come in the light of new residential and business developments which will see 18,000 new homes being built and 25,000 new jobs being created in the area.

The proposals are the first stage in the process of transforming Vauxhall Cross - following this consultation TfL will come back with further plans in 2015 and following further consultation the changes are likely to be brought in by 2020. These proposals are in addition to the cycle superhighway proposals which will be implemented next year.

Lambeth Cyclists welcome TfL's proposals for Vauxhall Cross as we believe that they will create space for cycling and make the area more people friendly. We have been campaigning to end the one-way system for over 15 years and look forward to a pedestrian and cycle friendly Vauxhall Cross.

See the full TfL Vauxhall Cross proposals on the TfL Vauxhall Cross consultation page, - the closing date for responses is 2 January 2015
