Strand and Aldwych set for four-day closure as Central London prepares for road network changes

One of London’s main central thoroughfares will close over a four-day period this week as Westminster City Council carries out works to permanently change the road layout.

From 19:00 on Thursday 19 until early afternoon on Sunday 22 August, Aldwych and the Strand will be closed to all traffic.

Aldwych's one-way system will be removed and become two-way for traffic and the Strand will become a space for pedestrians and cyclists between Lancaster Place and Surrey Street, with only residents, staff of businesses and those with off-street parking able to access the area using a vehicle between 10:00 and midnight.

Transport for London (TfL) say while the work takes place, roads in the surrounding area are expected to be busy and delays are expected.

From Thursday 19 August, several bus routes will be changed due to the new road layout. Some buses will need to take a slightly different route and bus stops will be relocated.
