I’d totally forgotten about the Clapham Junction exemplar scheme work starting until I got stuck in traffic today.
The roadworks have created a contraflow on Lavender Hill outside Asda (I think this is in Battersea, but you may want to check with their store manager) so it might be best avoided for a while.
The Clapham Junction scheme, overall, is intended to make the area better for pedestrians and traffic. Frankly Clapham Junction is a bit of a mess at the moment and sorely in need of improvement. The first phase will allow a right turn from Lavender Hill into Falcon Lane, relieving some of the congestion and the Lavender Hill/Falcon Road turn.
