How will it benefit me?

The project will transform Tottenham Court Road and its surrounding areas making it safer and more attractive for residents, commuters, boosting business and creating new public spaces for the community and visitors to enjoy.

It will address the following issues:

  • Traffic congestion creating delays and poor air quality
  • Narrow and cluttered pavements on Tottenham Court Road that won’t cope with more pedestrians
  • Lack of public spaces to enjoy the area
  • One-way streets on Tottenham Court Road and Gower Street making journeys longer
  • Bus passengers find the area confusing as they can’t arrive and leave from the same street
  • Pedestrian and cycling casualties caused by the speed of traffic and lack of good pedestrian crossings and cycle routes

We’ll work closely with Transport for London so that disruption to travel is kept to a minimum, and we’ll make sure you are updated on any changes throughout the project.
