Better and safer access for pedestrians and cyclists on Thessaly Road are at the centre of proposed improvements from Wandsworth Council which are now open for consultation.

Proposals include the introduction of raised, controlled crossing points, a safe route for cyclists, installation of new high-quality paving, new seating areas and planting and new cycle parking.

The scheme is part of a package of infrastructure improvements in the area which include proposals for a Controlled Parking Zone and the recently-opened ‘Happy Street’ redesign of the Thessaly Road rail bridge, all funded by contributions from developers in the area.

Thessaly Road is a key strategic link for cycle and pedestrian routes from north to south through the Vauxhall, Nine Elms and Battersea opportunity area, particularly when the two new Northern Line Extension stations open in 2021, so the proposed improvements reflect the need to meet changing demands of this growing central London area.

View the full consultation on the Wandsworth Council website and have your say online.

The consultation closes on 1 September 2019.
