Behind the hoarding at Wharfdale Road and York Way


In case you were wondering what is behind the hoardings at the site of the future Whitbread Hotel at the junction of Wharfdale and York Way it’s a giant hole.  Not quite as big as the one under the Guardian Kings Place, but a substantial excavated basement even by Chelsea or Hampstead standards.   In future it will look like this.

    Wonderful, ’cause that’s what Whardale Rd. really needs: more traffic chaos.

      Quite. Despite being probably the noisiest and most polluted residential road in the area, something always seems to be happening that makes it even worse rather than better. Let’s hope the proposed changes to the gyratory are in our favour. Hopefully, we’ll find out in a week or so.

    The initial plans for gyratory removal are out now. The best way to make sure they deliver what’s needed is to get involved in the consultation process and really push for positive change 🙂
