Support a Clean Green WBR

The primary objective of the WBRA is to create a Clean, Green Wandsworth Bridge Road

  • Make WBR safe and pleasant for all those who live, work or visit this road
  • Prioritise pedestrians and cyclists over cars
  • Reduce traffic congestion and pollution
  • Help support the businesses
  • Create a thriving, welcoming destination high street at the heart of our community.

Our aim is to shift the Wandsworth Bridge Road from a car-dominated, congested, polluted through-route to one that puts people first.

We have been working closely with the LBHF traffic and planning officers on the Transformation of Wandsworth Bridge Road. We are thrilled that they fully back our High Streets for All proposals to help reshape this road.

The independent global planning engineers WSP have been commissioned by LBHF to help design and deliver the proposals. There will be further community engagement events presenting the specifics on how to deliver the vision for a Clean, Green WBR. Find out more and see the latest proposals see here.

WBR Transformation

Some of our other actions to-date include:

  • Reducing speed limit on WBR to 20mph
  • Ran 2x full-street closure event: WBRA Spring Fayre on the 15th May 2022 and May 21st 2023 – drawing 10,000 and 14,000 visitors respectively
  • Campaigned and obtained for 2x OurBike e-cargo bikes on WBR to be used by the community and businesses
  • A Christmas 2022 Weekend event for the WBR businesses
  • Installed Christmas Lights on WBR (which continue)
  • Installed the first ever WBR Christmas Tree in 2022
  • Created Maps / Guides booklets for businesses to share with their customers on how to access the WBR businesses either by driving, cycling, walking or public transport
  • Hosted several ‘Emergency to Emergence’ Community workshops and helped with the Climate Emergency Workshops
  • Commenced Concept Design with LBHF & WSP for full redesign of our civic space
  • Pollution Mitigation: persuaded LBHF to do nightly wash-down of the road to capture dust and pollution particulates.
  • Developed a new Business Network on the High Street, working with local business to discuss their concerns and aspirations
  • Created the ‘Fulham Past : Fulham Future’ Exhibition
  • Establishing good working relationships with other local community stakeholders
  • Working with local police in identifying speeding hot-spots
  • Campaigning for speed and ‘acoustic’ cameras to address nuisance

Over the past 2 years we have spent countless hours researching and reading scientific studies and data about how traffic works. The solutions to tackling traffic congestion are often counter-intuitive – for example why closing roads can actually help reduce traffic!

Please take some time to read the various articles below about everything we have been working on to fully understand the reasoning and objectives behind building a Clean, Green WBR.
