The West End Project – transforming the Tottenham Court Road area

Tuesday 10 June 2014

Launch Event, 14:00 (Registration from 13:45)

NLA, The Building Centre, 26 Store Street, London WC1E 7BT

This launch event for The West End Project, held by LB Camden, will hear from key stakeholders involved in the consultation about the plans and discuss the proposed benefits for the area.

The West End Project will transform the Tottenham Court Road area into one of London’s premier commercial, cultural and academic districts. Public consultation on the West End project will take place from Monday 9 June 2014 until Friday 18 July 2014.
 
This £30 million investment will unlock the area’s potential, boosting business and creating public spaces for the community and visitors to enjoy.
 

The proposals will: 
- Create or improve five public spaces, and create a brand new park.

- Replace the one-way system with two-way roads, protected cycle lanes and improved public spaces.

- Create 18,000 square metres of new public realm, with nearly 300 new trees planted in the area.

- Reduce congestion and pollution, widen pavements and improve access to public transport.

- Be delivered by 2018 in time for the opening of Crossrail, when Tottenham Court Road station will have more visitors than Heathrow every day.

- Help to make this a thriving district, enabling businesses to capitalise on the opportunities of increased visitors.
