A travel plan for the whole area is being developed by the local authority, Transport for London and landowners to deliver comprehensive measures to promote sustainable transport solutions for the area. In bringing forward any new development, it would be a condition of granting planning permission that each development makes certain contributions to improve the areas transport infrastructure in line with this plan.
As part of the wider regeneration of South Fulham Riverside, there are a number of potential transport benefits to the local area including:
- Improvements to the junction of Wandsworth Bridge Road, Townmead Road and Carnwath Road to improve traffic flow for vehicles and safety for pedestrians
- Extensions and improvements to existing bus services to increase accessibility for the western part of the regeneration area including more frequent services
- Provision of a signalised junction to improve pedestrian environment at junction of Townmead Road and William Morris Way
- Pedestrian and cycle link across Wandsworth Bridge to continue Thames path
A Transport Assessment will be produced in support of our masterplan to assess the impact that new residents, employees and visitors will have on the existing infrastructure and what new provision is required.
Specific benefits of Fulham Riverside West Development
- Continuation of the Thames Riverside Walk along the site frontage of Hurlingham and Whiffen Wharfs
- Opportunity to provide a more sensitive shared use frontage for pedestrian and cyclists along Carnwath Road, reducing vehicle dominance
- Potential for a new pier as part of the scheme, moorings and facilities for use as part of a River Boat service
- Contributions to assist in delivering enhancement of existing bus services in the Fulham Riverside West area for the benefit of all
- Contributions to assist in the delivery of traffic flow and pedestrian improvements at the Wandsworth Bridge Road and Townmead junction
- The proposed scheme will substantially reduce the net impact of heavy goods vehicles on local roads compared with the potential alternative use of the site (potential for 50 plus daily HGV movements for Hurlingham as a working wharf)
- Provision of a car club
- Potential for a shuttle bus service to take residents directly to public transport connections
- Cycle parking on site and provision of cycle spaces for new residents
- Underground car parking to ensure no impact on parking in nearby streets
