Queenstown Road junction lane changes

  • All arms would retain the no right turn facilities for general traffic
  • The west arm of the Queenstown Road junction would have two lanes; one straight ahead lane and one left turn lane
    • The two lanes would be separated by a two metres wide central feeder lane for cyclists
  • The east arm would reduce to one lane; this would be for straight ahead and left turn in the same lane
  • The south arm would have two lanes; one straight ahead and left turn lane, and one straight ahead lane
  • The north arm of the junction would remain unchanged

Early start and advanced stop lines (ASL) for cyclists at Queenstown Road junction

  • Cyclists travelling from the south, east and west would be provided with an early start to get an advanced start ahead of general traffic
  • A video showing how an early start operates is available here
  • Advanced stop lines would be provided measuring at five metres deep
  • The northern arm (Queenstown Road) would remain unchanged

Two stage right turn facility for cyclists at Queenstown Road junction

  • A two stage right turn facility would be provided on all arms for cyclists waiting to turn right. Cyclists turning right would wait at a signalised turning pocket. A dedicated signal phase would allow cyclists to cross the junction
  • A video showing how a two-stage right turn operates is available here

Widened pedestrian footways would be provided on the south-west and south-east arms at Queenstown Road junction

  • We would widen the footway on the south-west and south-east footways by 6.3 metres to reduce pedestrian crossing widths at the south arm
  • To enable the south-west footway build out, the left turn slip from Queenstown Road to Battersea Park Road west would be removed
  • We propose to merge left turning traffic with the straight ahead traffic lane

A mixture of advisory and mandatory cycle lanes for the eastbound lane

  • This area would be provided with cycle lanes ranging from 1.6 metres to 2.3 metres wide
  • The section from Queenstown Road to the bus stop outside Battersea Park station would be an advisory cycle lane and the remainder would be a mandatory cycle lane
  • Cyclists would be required to merge with general traffic or wait when buses are stopped at bus stops due to space constraints

Loading bays to allow loading in the off peak Monday – Sunday

  • We propose to allow loading Monday - Sunday 7pm-7am with a maximum loading time of 20 minutes and disabled parking a maximum of three hours. The existing hours of these bays are No Stopping Monday – Saturday 7am-7pm except 10am-4pm loading 20 minutes, disabled parking three hours
