Ideas sought on making Queenstown Road safer, cleaner and greener
Published: Wednesday, March 24, 2021
Residents and businesses, motorists, cyclists and pedestrians are all being urged to come forward with their suggestions and ideas on how to make travel on busy Queenstown Road safer, cleaner and greener.
Some ideas already being considered include:
- Improving access for pedestrians and wheelchair users.
- Introducing measures to make it easier and safer for pedestrians to cross the street.
- Creating high quality, dedicated space for cycling.
- Incorporate landscaping and tree planting to make better use of our valuable public spaces.
Funding for these measures would come from cash sums levied from developers to improve infrastructure and public amenities in the Nine Elms part of the borough.
Wandsworth’s head of highways Nick O’Donnell said: “We are keen to listen to the views of local residents and businesses. We want local people to tell us what they think of these proposals. Their feedback will be key in helping to shape the future look of Queenstown Road as we look to make it safer and greener and boost alternative forms of travel.
“Our aim is to help people travel safely as more return to work and life begins to get back to normal.”
People can submit their suggestions and register their views via a survey published on the council’s website, which includes some Frequently Asked Questions, while feedback for travel improvements can also be submitted by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
