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

Welcome to our latest fortnightly update on works taking place along Sloane Street. We hope that residents find these updates a valuable source of information as works progress along the east side of the street. 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.

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.

Brompton Road to Harriet Street

As programmed, the main public realm works by FM Conway have now been completed to No 206. Pedestrian diversions will remain in place with dedicated walkway entrances into the retail units until the end of March.

Sloane Street (adjacent to the gardens) to the Junction with Cadogan Place South

FM Conway teams are conducting excavations and improving drainage on this section. This is in preparation for the public realm works commencing shortly. 

Sloane Terrace towards Sloane Square

Public realm works by FM Conway are ongoing in this area, with an anticipated completion at the end of March.

Harriet Street to Cadogan Place North

Reach Active works in this area are currently on program and due to be completed by 26th April.

Cadogan Place North to Pont Street

Deep excavation works are being carried out in the eastern side of the carriageway by Reach Active in association with Thames Water. ReachActive are also carrying out utility relocations in this area. Works in this section are expected to continue for two to three weeks.

Cadogan Place South to Sloane Square

Thames Water is progressing well with the excavation works required to commence the commissioning process. Wilbraham Place, Ellis Street and Cadogan Place South will be subject to partial intersection closures during this time to accommodate valve testing. In some instances, a full closer may be required. Full intersection closures will be required for the final connection works. Thames Water will try and complete these works with as little disruption to the operation of the intersections as possible.

Gas update

Commencing from Monday 8 January, gas pipe replacement works will be taking place on the Lower Sloane Street side of Sloane Square. This process is expected to last between 4 and 6 weeks. Gas supplies will be unaffected during these works and all entrances and exits to buildings will be maintained.

You can see a letter here sent to residents by Cadent Gas, who will be carrying out the works. Should you have any queries about the works, Cadent Gas can be contacted by email at CustomerCareLondon@Cadentgas.com or by phone on 0800 085 4478.
