Update on Exhibition Road project and road closures

On Tuesday 30 August, work will commence to install 19 lighting masts on Exhibition Road. The masts are over 20 metres high and require specialist equipment to install them.

Between the hours of 19.00 and 06.00, Exhibition Road will be closed between Cromwell Road and Prince Consort Road. Traffic will be diverted via Queen’s Gate and Prince Consort Road. Local access will be maintained from Kensington Road and Prince Consort Road where Balfour Beatty staff will man barriers to allow residents and others with properties in Exhibition Road access at all times. Pedestrian routes will not be affected by the works. The installation work is expected to take two weeks.

Any immediate concerns or special access requirements should be directed to the engineer for the project, Peter Weeden, on 020 7591 2583.
