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

10 July 2024

The public realm works are progressing along the east side of Sloane Street with tree pits being dug and more planters constructed. At the same time, paving and kerb laying continues, along with utilities upgrades. The latest figures on work completed to date are also included below.

Directional closure of Sloane Street

Traffic continues to travel in a southbound direction down the west side of the street whilst public realm works take place to the eastern footway. A copy of the traffic management and associated diversion routes can be found here.

Road closures

The junctions of Ellis Street and Wilbraham Place with Sloane Street will be closed until the end of July 2024.

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 continues 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.
