The long running roadworks on Lavender Hill by Clapham Junction are now more or less over, with the right turn into Falcon Lane now open.
This is part of a long term plan to improve traffic flow at the main crossroad by Clapham Junction Station. The new right turn allows traffic heading for Falcon Road, Battersea Park Road and York Road to avoid the busy Falcon Road/St John’s Hill.
Travelling along this stretch regularly, it certainly seems to have made a beneficial difference. Let’s hope the council doesn’t mess up the good work by littering the area with unneccesary traffic lights.
