It was a bit dark when I visited last night, as you can see:
Now that I've seen the placement of the dock (just off of Kennington Lane), which I've plotted on the map below (the top blue marker), I'm surprised at the choice of an additional site for Oval Way (ringed in red).
I forgot to check Oval Way yesterday to see whether the docking station there has been started, but I'll check tonight. My view is that there will be three docking stations too close to one another (considering that some areas have none). The docking station close to Kennington Tesco (blue market on the right), the new Vauxhall Road one (blue market on the left) and the proposed station on Oval Way are not near enough to Vauxhall Station to be any use as overflow points and I'm not sure why they've been clustered there.
My feeling is that it would be to put a station on the island (near to the over-active fountain) just outside of Oval Station. There's nothing else there and it would put the dock on a Cycle Superhighway as well. I think TFL are being silly about site placement, just trying to cram in their 400 docks to achieve the agreed quota. I really can't see that there's demand for both Vauxhall Road and Oval Way docks so close to one another. Of course, it should make it easier to find somewhere to park in Kennington (without having to wander all of the way to the Lollard Street stop), but the spacing is unimaginative. The real need is for more spaces around Vauxhall Station and further south in London. My suggestion for the use of the Oval fountain site is on account of it being a "main road" route. Oval Way is unnecessary, given the station placed so far down Vauxhall Road.
What do others think?
