New Cycle Route From Pimlico Proposed

The new proposals include

  • Segregated two-way cycle track replaces one traffic lane on Spur Road (between Constitution Hill and the junction of Spur Road and The Mall)
  • Segregated two-way cycle track replaces two southbound traffic lanes on Spur Road (between the junction of Spur Road and The Mall, and Birdcage Walk)

Elements of the previous scheme that would remain

  • Eastbound segregated cycle track and westbound mandatory cycle lane replace one traffic lane on Birdcage Walk
  • New signalised junction at Birdcage Walk / Spur Road
  • Relocated signalised pedestrian crossing on Birdcage Walk (outside Wellington Barracks), with a dedicated traffic light phase for cyclists
  • Straighter, shorter and wider pedestrian crossings at Buckingham Gate
  • Advanced Stop Lines for cyclists at Buckingham Gate
  • Widened footways on the western side of Link Road replace one traffic lane

Detailed proposals

Segregated two-way cycle track replaces one traffic lane on Spur Road (between Constitution Hill and the junction of Spur Road and The Mall)

  • The cycle track would allow cyclists to travel between Birdcage Walk and Constitution Hill without having to travel around the busy gyratory and move across traffic lanes
  • The cycle track would be at carriageway level and would be 6 metres wide (narrowing to 4.5 metres wide at the traffic signals). It would be separated from other traffic by a row of segregating flexible bollards
  • Cyclists would continue to be able to travel between Constitution Hill and The Mall (North Horse Ride) using the existing shared-use footway; bollards would help encourage appropriate cycling speed

Segregated two-way cycle track replaces two southbound traffic lanes on Spur Road (between the junction of Spur Road and The Mall, and Birdcage Walk)

  • This proposal replaces the proposed mandatory southbound cycle lane that we consulted on in February, and would make it a two-way cycle track
  • Making the track two-way, instead of one-way, would allow cyclists to travel northbound as well as southbound along Spur Road, between Birdcage Walk and Constitution Hill, without having to travel around the busy gyratory and move across traffic lanes
  • The cycle track would be at carriageway level and would be 6 metres wide (narrowing to 4.5 metres wide at the traffic signals and through Australia Gate). It would be separated from other traffic by a row of segregating flexible bollards
  • The signalised junction at Spur Road/Birdcage Walk would have dedicated traffic light phases for cyclists, allowing cycle and vehicle movements to be separated. Motor traffic would be held at red lights whilst cyclists travel east and west through the junction. Left-turning traffic from Spur Road would also be held at a red light whilst cyclists turn right from Spur Road into Birdcage Walk (towards Buckingham Gate)

This consultation closes on Sunday, 4 October 2015.

Have your say on transforming Vauxhall Cross

The Vauxhall Nine Elms Battersea development will bring 25,000 new jobs and 18,000 new homes to the area. Yet Vauxhall’s potential to flourish is held back because it is dominated by traffic.

We want Vauxhall to continue to benefit from this regeneration. We are working with the London Borough of Lambeth on ambitious plans to create a thriving centre for Vauxhall, to make it a better, safer, more vibrant place for everyone who lives, works and travels through it.

The proposals include removing the one-way traffic system around Vauxhall Cross and returning the streets to two-way working, and making improvements to the rail, bus and tube interchange. This will create a safer environment for the growing number of pedestrians and cyclists in the area.

The plans are still at an early stage and we would like to hear your views to help shape the designs we take forward during the next year.

Pimlico Exhibition – THE ART OF WAR HORSE

To commemorate the centenary of World War I a unique exhibition celebrating the dramatisation of Michael Morpurgo’s book War Horse “THE ART OF WAR HORSE” is being held at 22 Bury Street, St. James’s, SW1Y 6AL ( a short walk from Pimlico Flats) until 30th August. Entry is free.

The book was first published in 1982 and recently this wartime tale has become an international phenomenon. The stage play, launched at The National Theatre in 2007, has become one of the greatest British productions and seen by over 3 million people worldwide. Theatre designer Rae Smith is the artistic mastermind who brought this to life on stage, and for which she won both the US Tony Award and the British Olivier Award, and the exhibition shows Rae’s original theatre, costume and scenic artwork. On show will be a selection of equine drawings of the horse puppets so vividly created by Handspring Puppet Company, as well as powerful Vorticist-inspired depictions of battle-torn France.
