Waterloo Road (footway expansion)

Closes 31 Dec 2020

Opened 1 Jul 2020


In May 2020 we made the following temporary changes: 

  • Widened the footway on both sides of Waterloo Road outside Waterloo station, and added extra space for passengers at bus stops
  • Removed the northbound bus lane outside Waterloo Station and combined northbound bus stops C & F
  • Retained one running lane in each direction and left enough room for traffic to overtake a stationary bus 

Although we are not undertaking a formal consultation on any Streetspace schemes, we would like to know about your experiences of them. If you have any comments about the effects of our scheme, or suggestions for changes or improvements we might make, please let us know at: streetspacelondon@tfl.gov.uk

We will continue to monitor the effects of these temporary changes over the coming months. This includes their effects on traffic flow, road safety and cycling and walking rates. We have written to local people, businesses and other stakeholders to explain what changes we have made and encouraged them to provide us their views and experiences of the changes. We will listen carefully to the feedback we receive.
