It’s happening after the death of a man there in January 2021.
The proposed changes to the north and south sides include new pedestrian crossings, bus lanes, cycle signals, and a cycle track.
Around 70% of people who responded to the consultation believed the changes would make them walk or cycle more.
North end changes:
• New, straight-across, push-button pedestrian crossings on Cheyne Walk, Chelsea Embankment and Beaufort Street
• Making improvements for cyclists at the junction by installing dedicated cycle signals and a section of segregated cycle track
• A new section of westbound bus lane from Royal Hospital Road to the bus stop at Beaufort Street to ensure bus journey times in the area are maintained
• Banning the left turn into Beaufort Street for a small number of vehicles, to reduce delays and wait times at the turning point, and to improve safety and eliminate the risk of left turning vehicles colliding with cyclists. Cyclists will still be able to access Beaufort Street via a shared use footway
TfL is also making changes to the southern end of the bridge, including:
• A new push-button pedestrian crossing on Battersea Bridge Road at Hester Road
• A bus gate, which would continue to improve bus journey times for buses travelling northwards
• A new pedestrian crossing at the Battersea Bridge Road / Battersea Church Road junction
• An extended bus lane from Banbury Street northwards on Battersea Bridge Road to improve bus journey times
• Reconfigured crossing points at the junction of Battersea Bridge Road with the Prince of Wales Drive, widening pavements, removing the existing traffic island and building two new pedestrian crossings
• Banning the right turn from Battersea Bridge Road into Parkgate Road and the left turn into the B305 to improve safety for people walking and cycling, including an “all green man” phase at the junction, and to help bus journey times
