TfL ref: FMS3114768.
There has been permission to narrow the exit from Wandsworth road onto Vauxhall gyratory to allow building works. This is causing a tailback 1km back along Wandsworth road. Bad decision, causes delays, pollution, risk to cyclists and has been appallingly planned and allowed. The space is not actually required for the works it has simply been made to accommodate unnecessarily. Should be reverted to normal ASAP if the council has any sense

Thank you for taking the time to report this to us. It is much appreciated. Our team had investigated this for you and found that this doesn't fall under the responsibility of Transport for London and comes under the remit of the local Borough. The works causing the tailbacks on Wandsworth Road have been permitted and agreed with LB Lambeth. They are s50 works for Thames Water Sewer connections. You may therefore wish to report this issue by using www.fixmystreet.com, or directly to the borough. Should you need anything else, please contact our customer services team on 0343 222 1234
