Work has begun today on the northern roundabout at Elephant & Castle.
The plan is to improve the busy intersection by providing two-way traffic, dedicated cycle lanes and safer pedestrian crossing.
Over 80 per cent of members of the public who responded to the consultation stated they supported the key elements of the design.
The works will run into 2016, and may affect commuters through the area.
The improvements are designed to make the roundabout safer and greener for residents and commuters.
The work is part of the Road Modernisation Plan, which is made up of hundreds of projects to transform junctions, bridges, tunnels and public spaces in London.
However, some believe the proposed improvements would do exactly the opposite, and believe it would make the area more congested, polluted and dangerous for pedestrians.
However, the plan’s gone ahead with support from the local council and work began this morning.
The regeneration will include the removal of the roundabout and the creation of a major new public space in and around the new peninsular.
