End of works
On 8 December we marked the end of the Exhibition Road project with a small ceremony to thank the staff and craftspeople who made it possible, and the local people who supported the project.
The Leaders of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and the City of Westminster, along with Councillor Daniel Moylan, representing the Mayor of London, buried a time capsule under the granite surface of the road. The capsule contains details of the project and information on the institutions in the area as well as everyday items including tea bags, a mobile phone, a daily newspaper, coins and a high visibility vest.
A formal opening ceremony, led by the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, will take place at the beginning of February 2012.
