Transport for London (TfL) are hosting two drop in sessions this week near to the US Embassy in London, offering updates and information on transport infrastructure developments and works in Nine Elms where the Embassy is located.
Nine Elms has undergone a substantial number of developments in recent years, including the construction of residential buildings, business offices and the Embassy itself. TfL are currently undertaking work to regenerate the area's transport infrastructure, with a 2.5km stretch of Nine Elms Lane and Battersea Park Road (the A3205) being upgraded with plans including new cycle paths, improved signal-controlled pedestrian crossings, wider pavements and the planting of new trees. During the works, which take place between Monday January 6 and December 2020, there will be a relocation of some bus stops, changes to some pedestrian crossings, and a reduction of the number of lanes available to drivers, with one lane in each direction available.
Representatives of TfL, the Battersea Power Station Development Company and infrastructure firm FM Conway will be in attendance at the two drop in sessions, which will offer members of the public access to information about the project. The drop in sessions, which take place between 4pm and 8pm on Tuesday January 7 and Thursday January 9, will be located at the Rose Community Centre, Ascalon St, Nine Elms, London SW8 4DJ.
More information on the project and these drop in sessions can be found via https://tfl.gov.uk/travel-information/improvements-and-projects/nine-elms
