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.

Fortnightly Sloane Street Residents’ Update

28 May 2024

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.

Directional closure of Sloane Street

Traffic is currently diverted onto the western side of the street and continues to travel in a southbound direction. 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 are being 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

Update 6 June 2024 – Contractors Wolffkran Ltd will place a mobile crane on Hans Crescent to enable the erection of a tower crane. This is connected to development work at 30-33 Sloane Street. During this operation, the junction between Hans Crescent and Sloane Street will be closed and a diversion will be in place. A letter has been distributed to affected neighbours, which can be read here.

The junctions of Ellis Street and Wilbraham Place with Sloane Street will be closed until late spring 2024.

The junction of Harriet Street with Sloane Street has been 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, so should be finished by mid-June.

Sloane Terrace was closed on 23rd May by Thames Water to repair a collapsed sewer, with an advised duration of three weeks.

Cadogan Place North junction will be closed until mid summer while the FM Conway team undertake breaking out works to the carriageway to install the new raised table and footway paving.

Cadogan Place south has been reopened following completion of the Reach Active/Thames Water works.

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. Bus Stop KL has been closed, with a temporary ‘floating’ stop created south of Pont Street.  This facility is necessary to maintain a stop, whilst FM Conway continue with the public realm works opposite the Danish Embassy.

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.

Works updates

Brompton Road to Harriet Street

The temporary signal-controlled pedestrian crossing is still in operation on this section whilst works on Basil Street are being completed. Following this, TfL will install the permanent lights at this junction. Pedestrian management is currently being removed as works are completed on the footway.

In the ongoing public realm works, tiled areas on the threshold of some retail units will be completed within the next few weeks. The area to the front of Louis Vuitton on the Sloane Street side will be completed over the next fortnight, cleaning will take place and the barriers will be removed. The exception to this will be the section where the bus stop is located; FM Conway is waiting for TfL to relocate this stop before they can complete the entire section here. A date has not yet been confirmed.

Harriet Street Junction

New kerb lines on either side of the junction have been installed. A loading bay to the side of Louis Vuitton is now complete. Excavations to build the raised junction table are well under way. Virgin Media will be on site to undertake work to the high ducting. Further public realm works have slowed here until this work is completed.

Harriet Street to Cadogan Place north

The paving and new kerb line will shortly be installed in this area, moving south from Roger Vivier to Shelton House. This section is expected to take eight weeks to complete. Additionally, the planters to the front of Versace and Moncler are being planted and some trees are being installed. Some ReachActive work in association with Virgin Media is underway to the front of Hermes. 

Cadogan Place North Junction

The FM Conway team will be breaking out the carriageway at the junction of Cadogan Place North with Sloane Street to install the new raised table and footway paving.

Cadogan Place North to Pont Street

Cappagh are undertaking drainage works in this section and can be identified by the blue barriers. Their work commenced on 13th May and should be complete by the end of June.

Pont Street to Cadogan Place South

The bus stop KL on the western footway to the front of Dorchester Court will be relocated to a position slightly to the south, to the front of Forde House. FM Conway continues to undertake public realm works on the eastern footway in this area. 

Cadogan Place South to Sloane Square

Excavation work to install the remaining section of the raised table in the carriageway to the front of Catherine Provost, south of the junction of Cadogan Place south, started on Monday 20th May. This work is making good progress and should be completed by the beginning of June. Excavation works will commence in the carriageway at the junction of Ellis Street with Sloane Street. Public Realm works at the junction of Wilbraham Place will commence once ReachActive/Thames Water have completed the water connections and backfill. This is to install the raised table at this location. Work is expected to take eight weeks to complete.

ReachActive works at the junction of Cadogan Place South, taking place in association with Thames water, are now complete and the junction is now open. ReachActive’s work at the junction of Ellis Street and Wilbraham Place continues until mid-June. The junction of Ellis Street and Wilbraham place will remain closed as FM Conway will be working at this junction to complete the public realm features beyond that date. ReachActive works are also ongoing in the carriageway to the front of the Holy Trinity Church. The carriageway excavations will remain open until all the new water connections have been tested. This work is anticipated to be completed by late June.

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.
