Kensington & Chelsea are consulting on a redesign of Sloane Square to provide more pedestrian space.
The plan that RB Kensington & Chelsea are proposing is to remove the gyratory system and replace it with a staggered crossroads.
Access to Holbein Place on the southeast corner of the square would be removed, creating a large pedestrian area on the eastern side of the square, outside the Underground station.
A smaller pedestrian space would be created on the western side of the square.
The right turn from Cliveden Place to Sloane Street would be banned to create a long enough pedestrian crossing phase at the traffic lights.
The plan would have a beneficial impact on the pedestrian environment of the square; however, it would require that bus stops for services to and from Chelsea were moved a couple of minutes' walk away, to the King's Road outside Peter Jones.
No current news for this project.
