How the pedestrianisation of the Strand could affect you

Concept artwork depicting the pedestrianisation the the Strand

As part of an ambitious redevelopment, Westminster City Council (WCC) is pedestrianising the section of the Strand from Surrey Street to Waterloo Bridge. The scheme, known as Strand/Aldwych, will transform the area from a busy road into a social space filled with trees, lawns and places to sit – radically improving the community’s experience of the local area.

Impact on King’s

Anyone using the campus may be affected by the impact of the construction work taking place and we are working closely with WCC to ensure noise and disruption is kept to a minimum.

The space will be divided into zones and construction tackled in a broadly clockwise direction from the East end of the space, periodically closing sections of the road.

Access to our buildings

Access will be affected from the Strand into our buildings at various times. Alternative access points including disabled access will be made available which may mean taking a different or longer route.

Signs will direct you to the alternative routes while each of these closures is in effect.

All other entrances remain open.

Bus routes/stops

The current bus stops located outside the Strand Building will be permanently re-located to Melbourne Place (the road between South East Wing and Australia House).

For more information on the diversion of buses, visit the Transport for London website.

Cycling to campus

Cyclists should continue to access the bike parks via Strand Lane or the pedestrian gate next to the South East Wing of Bush House.
