Lavington Street to benefit from Bankside Boardwalk

Innovative project will transform street to support greater footfall

Works will start on the innovative and experimental Bankside Boardwalk on Lavington Street in mid-December.  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 Bankside Boardwalk has been designed by local transport and design consultancy Steer Davies Gleave, and is being built in West London by the award winning Trueform street furniture company.

The works, due to start on site on 12th December, are being managed on site by Maylim, and are due to take just over one week 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.
