The council had expressed concerns that this part of the scheme could have had a negative impact upon people who live on the Savona, Patmore and Carey Gardens estate – a concern echoed by the consultation findings.
TfL will draw up detailed designs for the eastern part of the scheme between Sleaford Street and the Vauxhall gyratory that received the most positive response. This will include wider paths, dedicated cycle routes, a widened bus lane, redesigned junctions including improvements to the junctions of Kirtling Street, Cringle Street and Ponton Road, and safer crossing for pedestrians.

The council has pledged to continue to work with TfL to create better facilities along the route for cyclists, bus passengers and pedestrians and to improve the look of the road with new paving and more trees. The scheme is not being funded by TfL but by the council using money it receives by placing a levy on local developers.
Leader of the council Ravi Govindia, said: “Improvements to Nine Elms Lane and Battersea Park Road are a key part of the successful regeneration of the area and it is right that TfL take into account the views of the many people who will be using it in future. We would work with TfL to take the project forward and ensure the consultation results are taken on board.”
