Working in partnership with the Borough of Kensington & Chelsea

Cadogan and Kensington & Chelsea Council are delivering an exciting multi-million pound public realm programme on Sloane Street. The improvements create an elegant and welcoming environment for pedestrians, without compromising the street’s character or negatively impacting traffic flows. Read more about Our Vision

Consulting the Community

In 2016 & 2017, over 1,100 people took part in a consultation on the Sloane Street proposals, which were approved through the Council’s Key Decision process in April 2019. Over 75% of respondents said they supported the proposals. All responses have been considered, and where possible the feedback has been incorporated into the final design for the street.

Fortnightly Sloane Street Residents’ Update

In our latest fortnightly update on works taking place along the east side of Sloane Street, we can see paving and public realm works progressing well. In response to feedback received from residents, please note that information on bus services using the street has been included below. 

Directional closure of Sloane Street

As previously referenced, the traffic management has now been reconfigured. This means the traffic will be diverted onto the western side of the street but will continue to travel in a southbound direction. Although the original intention had been to change the directional closure to allow northbound traffic, after meetings with residents and businesses, Cadogan and Kensington and Chelsea Council have decided to maintain the northbound closure of Sloane Street in 2024 until the completion of the project.

This means that the current directional closure which has been in place since January 2023 will be in place for the remainder of the works, including during the construction of the eastern footway. To help passengers alight from buses safely, temporary stops will be utilised as close to the existing stop as is safely possible or by building temporary ‘floating’ stops whilst the new kerb lines are constructed.

A copy of the traffic management and associated diversion routes can be found here.

Road closures 

The junctions of Cadogan Place South, Ellis Street, Wilbraham Place & Sloane Terrace with Sloane Street will be closed until late spring 2024. The junction of Harriet Street with Sloane Street will be closed from Monday 15th April whilst the FM Conway team complete paving to the side of Louis Vuitton. This section of work should take eight to ten weeks to be completed.Cadogan Place south will also be closed from 13th May to facilitate FM Conway starting works in this area.

Sloane Terrace will be closed for five to six weeks from 10th May for emergency works by Thames Water to repair a collapsed sewer.

Bus services

Sloane Street continues to be served by bus services during the works in a southbound direction, providing services towards Battersea Park, Chelsea and Victoria. At present, bus stop KK (Sloane Street / Knightsbridge Station) is closed with a temporary stop provided on Knightsbridge by William Street. Stop KL (Pont Street) remains open. Stop C (Sloane Square) is currently closed, users should use Stop D located to the east of Sedding Street. Live information about which bus services and stops are open can be found using the TfL bus stop tracker. We will continue to update the website with relevant information about bus services.

Bus stop KL will be closed from the beginning of May. Passengers should utilise the “floating” bus stop installed by FM Conway at Pont Street which will be officially operational from this week. This facility is necessary to maintain a stop whilst the public realm works continue here.

Brompton Road to Harriet Street

Works are progressing well here and as predicted should be completed enough to gradually remove the pedestrian management soon.

Harriet Street to Cadogan Place North

The Reach Active works in association with UKPN in this area are now complete. The carriageway will be reinstated entirely by the end of w/b 29th April, after which the public realm elements will follow. Where FM Conway have been able to complete the public realm on this section, they have made good progress. All three planters to the front of Delvaux, Moncler & Versace, which were installed during the last few weeks, will be completed, and filled with sub and topsoil. ReachActive works are also taking place outside Hermes to divert existing comms utilities and cabinets.

Cadogan Place North to Pont Street

FM Conway is pushing forward with the public realm aspects as the ReachActive utilities work on this section concludes. Cappagh will also be undertaking drainage works in this section, starting from 13th May.

Pont Street to Cadogan Place South

FM Conway continues to undertake public realm works in this area.

Cadogan Place South to Sloane Square 

ReachActive works, in association with Thames Water, are ongoing in the carriageway to the front of the Holy Trinity Church, at the junctions of Cadogan Place south, Ellis Street, Wilbraham Place and Sloane Terrace, with Sloane Street. Thames Water will require further tests to take place before the reinstatement of the carriageway can take place. Where the progress of the ReachActive/Thames Water works allow, the FM Conway team will progress with the public realm works on this section. From Amelia Wickstead moving south, excavations works will be underway to facilitate new and improved drainage. The installation of planters will then follow. 

Sloane Terrace

Emergency works due to a collapse sewer pipe are due to start on 10th May for five to six weeks. Sloane Terrace will be closed throughout this period. 

Please note, the dates and times of this work are only indicative and may take longer than expected if the site team encounters any unforeseen difficulties, such as engineering challenges or bad weather.
