Wandsworth Council has been awarded a £1.2million transport grant to improve the road network surrounding Clapham Junction Station.
The council’s scheme aims to reduce traffic congestion, cut accidents by a third and improve the environment for pedestrians and cyclists.
The work would also improve station access and make life easier for commuters switching between different modes of transport.
The project will include introducing a new right-turn traffic movement from Lavender Hill into Falcon Lane. This new route will divert some traffic away from the main crossroads where Lavender Hill meets St John’s Hill – easing congestion and making way for safety improvements.
There will also be new pavement surfaces, new pedestrian crossing points, new cycle lanes and improved street lighting.
Work is expected to start in March 2010.
