Westminster City Council has unveiled a major new public space at Strand Aldwych, transforming one of London’s most congested areas into a pedestrian-friendly environment.

Designed by LDA Design, the £22 million project converted busy roads into welcoming civic spaces, enhancing pedestrian safety and accessibility. The development links key cultural and educational institutions like King’s College London, Somerset House, and The Courtauld Institute, providing a venue for art, performances, and public events. The transformation also includes environmental benefits such as biodiverse planting, improved air quality and spaces for relaxation and social interaction.

Kinley contributed to the Strand-Aldwych project by providing Urban landscape edging with a footplate, powder-coated in RAL 8029 to match benches also included in the scheme. The installation, carried out by FM Conway, complemented the overall design by ensuring cohesive and durable urban landscaping. Kinley's involvement helped realise the project's vision of a pedestrian-centric space that promotes health, well-being and aesthetic harmony with the surrounding heritage architecture.
