Parts of Vauxhall gyratory will be closed this weekend to finish off the clear-up work in the wake of last month’s helicopter crash.

There will be no access to Vauxhall Bridge northbound from 5am tomorrow until 5am on Monday so the 800 tonne temporary crane can be taken down at St George’s Wharf.

Nine Elms Lane is still closed between Battersea Park Road and the Vauxhall one-way system in both directions.

Completion of the works was pushed back because of high winds and thick fog in Vauxhall. London Underground and rail services will continue to operate normally.

Two people, including the pilot, were killed after the crash in Wandsworth Road on January 16.

Leon Daniels, from TfL, said: “Our staff and contractors continue to work to minimise disruption to people travelling through the Vauxhall area following the recent terrible incident.

“While I can appreciate the frustration that local businesses and road users have felt about these prolonged road closures, the nature of these works meant that they need to be carried out with the highest level of safety.”
