Overview

Brompton Road connects London’s museums to the shops and offices of Knightsbridge, and is heavily used by pedestrians, cycles and vehicles. Our planned changes would provide a pedestrian crossing at the junction with Beauchamp Place and improve the junction for cyclists and vehicles.

 

What are we proposing?

These are the improvements we are proposing:

  • Installing a new pedestrian crossing on Beauchamp Place with a countdown timer and rotating cones. The crossing will include upgraded  paving to help visually impaired and blind people, improving conditions for vulnerable users
  • Introducing advanced stop lines for cycles on Beauchamp Place and westbound on Brompton Road to give cyclists a larger waiting area and make them more visible to other road users
  • Moving the stop line back on Beauchamp Place to make it easier for left turning vehicles entering the junction from Brompton Road by providing more space
  • Amending the kerb line to the west of the junction to help right-turning vehicles from Brompton Road by providing more space
  • Remarking the existing pedestrian crossing on Brompton Road eastbound 
  • Providing new directional road markings on Brompton Road westbound to let road users know which lane they should take

 

The drawings below show the changes in more detail. We plan to implement these changes in spring 2018.

Will these changes affect your journey?

These changes are designed to ensure that pedestrians and vulnerable people have a safe way to cross Beauchamp Place, while improving the movement of traffic throughout the area. Our modelling shows that the junctions will continue to operate efficiently and the changes will have little impact on journey times through the area. We will monitor the completed scheme to ensure it is operating as expected and make adjustments as required.
