Are Kennington Junction works leading to speeding traffic in Fentiman Road and Albert Square?

Works on TfL's scheme to transform the junctions around Oval tube station in Kennington under the Better Junctions initiative began in March.

The works are expected to be completed by the end of the year. One effect of the roadworks that some members have noticed is more rat running on side roads around the junctions such as Albert Square and Fentiman Road.

We will be pressing for greater filtered permeability for these roads to restrict through motor vehicles.
