Public consultation is now open on Westminster's proposals for the Strand/Aldwych area.
The main proposals are to change the north side of Aldwych gyratory system into a four-lane, two-way road, and remove all motor traffic from its south side (Strand) except for a few local connections. See plan below.

The plans we’ve seen show no formal cycle route through the south side of Aldwych, and no way for eastbound cyclists to enter at the west end and exit and the east end.
The Aldwych is typical of the gyratory systems of the 1960s that are now largely discredited and a hostile environment for cyclists: at some point you will probably have to cross at least two lanes of fast-moving traffic. Not to mention the noise, fumes etc. Not much fun for pedestrians either!
You can find further information at https://strandaldwych.org/, where there are also details of the public exhibition and how to respond to the consultation.
More detailed information can be found in the consultants' Design Summary.
You can also contribute to the discussion on Cyclescape.
The consultation closes on Wednesday 13th March.
