Programme of works 2024

Programme of works 2024 table.

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 or by phone on 0800 085 4478.

Working areas and temporary resurfacing

Since September, when the first stages of the works began, you would have seen many different contractors undertaking work all along Sloane Street. This scheme was designed to be a joint venture with many project partners working either alongside each other or consecutively, as required.

Writing a programme to include several types of contractors is complex as construction can be unpredictable. Progress is often dictated by weather conditions and previously undetected complications below ground. All the teams involved are making every effort to keep to the programme and deliver the scheme on time for all. This means, that in some cases, areas which had previously had excavation taking place, will be covered temporarily for safety and aesthetic reasons whilst the next contractor, who may have had to start work on another section earlier than expected, is ready to take over.

We acknowledge this can appear to be wasteful and potentially extending the period of disruption in one area, but please be assured it has been carefully considered in the planning stage.
