VAUXHALL NEEDS YOUR HELP
TfL are planning some major changes around Vauxhall – removing part of the gyratory, demolishing the bus station and replacing it with something else. Here is their ‘consultation’ page https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/roads/vauxhall-cross
TfL plan to permanently remove road space and turn Vauxhall bus station into a building site for several years. There will be no roll back.
If TfL get it wrong (many locals think they will), Vauxhall will be a mess for years to come
There is a much better solution known as ‘Our Vauxhall’. The plan has been developed by local architects, urban design specialists, transport engineers and local residents who know the area really well. Compared with TfL’s scheme, Our Vauxhall has;
- Fewer traffic lights
- Fewer overall left/right turns
- Shorter overall distance to travel
- Fewer banned movements (no left/no right turns)
It’s better for drivers, cyclists, pedestrians and buses. TfL think it won’t work. We want your help to prove TfL wrong.
We’re looking for a few cabbies who know the area to go over Our Vauxhall and TfL’s plans and see who is right.
If you are interested, here are the contact details:
If you think Our Vauxhall deserves a fair hearing, please respond to TfL’s Vauxhall Cross ‘consultation’ and reject their proposal. It is in everyone’s interest to get Vauxhall right.
Please get the message out and support Our Vauxhall
