Plans for Pedestrian Crossing at Intersection of Royal Hospital Road/Lower Sloane Street

The request was successful.

Dear Transport for London,

In recent correspondence TfL referred to plans for a pedestrian crossing at the intersection of Royal Hospital Road/Lower Sloane Street in Chelsea SW3. These plans were rejected by TfL. I believe it is in the interest of nearby residents to see these plans. Can you please make them available. If the reasons why the plans were rejected could also be made available, that would be great. Thank you.

Yours faithfully,

M.F. Doyle

Dear M.F. Doyle

 

Our Ref:          FOI-0378-1819

 

Thank you for your request received on 14 May 2018 asking for information
about the plans for a pedestrian crossing at the junction of Royal
Hospital Road with Lower Sloane Street.

 

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy. I can
confirm we hold some of the information you require. You asked for:

 

TfL has been in discussion with the Royal Borough of Kensington and
Chelsea (RBKC) about the aspiration to provide enhance signal controlled
pedestrian crossing facilities at the Royal Hospital Road/ Lower Sloane
Street junction. The proposals basically involve changes to the signals
set up with no real layout changes so we do not hold plans. TfL has
undertaken a modelling assessment of a new pedestrian stage at the
junction and this has raised concern about significant extra northbound
queuing on Chelsea Bridge Road northbound, which in turn could have
negative impacts over a wide area, in in particular bus operations. In
response to these issues, RBKC are looking at options including changes to
an existing “zebra” crossing on Lower Sloane Street. If a viable scheme
comes forward RBKC, have conformed that it would be subject to full public
consultation in the normal way.

 

If this is not the information you are looking for please feel free to
contact me.

 

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to
appeal.

 

Yours sincerely
