Practice’s pedestrianisation proposals unclog stretch of historic thoroughfare
LDA Design has drawn up proposals to pedestrianise a run of The Strand to reclaim part of the historic thoroughfare from buses and taxis.
The scheme, created for Westminster council, would remove traffic from a 200-metre stretch of the road, diverting westbound vehicles via Aldwych and creating a new public piazza stretching from Arundel Street to the Waterloo Bridge approach.
In the process the plans would change the setting of the grade I-listed Somerset House and St Mary-le-Strand church, as well as King’s College London, the LSE and a range of other locally listed buildings.
