Improvements for Lambeth North passengers

The area around Lambeth North tube station is set to benefit from a million-pound package of improvements to security, making the area easier and safer to get around.

Work includes upgrading the pavements and lighting, improving crossings for pedestrians, better facilities for cyclists and the installation of CCTV.

Funded by Transport for London, Cross River Partnership and the TfL London Bus Initiative the project aims to improve personal security around the tube station, especially the pedestrian routes from Lambeth North station to St Thomas' Hospital and the London Ambulance Service HQ to Waterloo Station.

Councillor Andrew Sawdon, lead member for transport at Lambeth Council said: "The work around Lambeth North tube will make the area safer to visit, improve the look and overall quality of public space and enhance its attractiveness for shopping and entertainment. It will also mean the tube station is much easier to use when coming and going and a clearly-defined transport interchange."

TfL Interchange Manager Tony Antoniou said: "TfL are pleased to be working with Lambeth Council and the police to help address passengers' concerns about the security of transport interchanges".

The work is due to be completed this spring.
