Mott MacDonald reviewing traffic and pedestrian management for the Chelsea Flower Show

Mott MacDonald has been working on a project for The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) to review traffic and pedestrian management during the build up and breakdown of the Chelsea Flower Show, one of London’s best known spring events, which this year takes place from 24 - 28 May.

The Chelsea Flower Show attracts over 150 000 visitors to the site in south London each year. The last weekend of the build up prior to the public opening sees intensive activity by contractors, exhibitors – over 600 every year – journalists and staff. The RHS recognises that local residents and pedestrians are inconvenienced by this increased traffic and commissioned a review of traffic management and access during this critical period to ensure access is as safe, efficient and effective as possible.

Following a review of traffic management for the Tatton Park Flower Show in north west England, Mott MacDonald was appointed to carry out a similar review for the Chelsea event. The consultant has been meeting with key stakeholders including the RHS, The Royal Hospital, local highway and planning authorities, exhibitors and contractors to identify issues and constraints relating the site access, carrying out traffic and pedestrian movement analyses within the site and making short term and long term recommendations to improve access for the 2005 show and all future events.

For the 2005 show recommendations have included providing dedicated pedestrian routes within the site segregated from vehicle traffic, negotiating additional access points to and from the site with Transport for London and providing stronger control on parking within the site for contractor and exhibitor traffic.
