Exhibition Road

As well London’s landmark museums, Exhibition Road is home to 15,000 students and one of London’s busiest underground stations, used by 30 million people every year. This project applies current theories on ‘shared spaces’ by removing barriers and allowing pedestrians and traffic to share space.

Project Centre was the lead highway, traffic and lighting engineering consultancy involved in this project (and was since project inception) which included the following works

• The first phase examined traffic flows in South Kensington in preparation for phase two. Public realm services (street lighting, signalling, paving, signage, etc.) was revised

• The second phase was the radical redesign of 16,000m2 of public realm and the associated engineering along the full length of the street from South Kensington station to Hyde Park.

Traffic data was collected in order to model vehicle and pedestrian flows at individual junctions and across South Kensington. Origin and destination data was used with junction surveys to ensure junction and signal designs met their demands before they were introduced onto the street. Project Centre was also responsible for the complete new drainage design and profiling the street.

The lighting design was based on a linear arrangement of 20.35m bespoke columns coordinated with the geometric design of the surface finishes. Each column provides night time “White light” illuminance which contributes to personal security. LEDs mounted on the columns provide the sparkle, visual diversity and interest needed in this high profile public space to create a world class streetscape
