Works will start on the innovative and experimental Bankside Boardwalk on Lavington Street in mid-November. In 2016 we secured funding through Transport for London's Future Streets Fund to trial a project on Lavington Street that temporarily retunes the street. The trial project will implement an experimental one-way traffic operation on Lavington Street, and will use the road space freed up to extend narrow pavements using a specially commissioned modular 'boardwalk' structure.
The works, due to start on site on 13th November, are being managed on site by Maylim, and are due to take just under two weeks to implement. There will be changes to the road layout and parking on Lavington Street. The project is due to be on site for six months, during which Better Bankside will be analysing the impact of the project on users of the street.
