Vauxhall Cross is the name of a complex of road junctions in the Vauxhall area of London.

19th century maps show Wandsworth Road, Bond Street (now Bondway) and South Lambeth Road meeting immediately west of the station ticket hall. New Bridge Street (better known as Vauxhall Bridge), High Street (now Albert Embankment) and Upper Kennington Lane joined the complex immediately to the north.

By the 1950s, Archer Street had been turned into Parry Street, and was extended to form the southern side of the gyratory. Meanwhile South Lambeth Road was extended up the east side of the railway, to form the eastern side of the gyratory. This meant Goding Street and Harleyford Road, positioned in the north-east corner, were now part of the junction.

South Lambeth Place, which was the remains of the old section of South Lambeth Road that used to run under the railway, was adjusted to run southbound only. The north-western corner, which was the original section of the junction, was expanded in the 1970s. Most of the buildings on Bondway were demolished, and in 2004 a major project to upgrade the bus station and everything inside the junction was completed.
