Forming part of LB Camden's public consultation, this exhibition at NLA showcases the Council's proposals for Gower Street and Tottenham Court Road.
Developed in partnership with stakeholders and in discussion with the local community, The West End project hopes to transform the Tottenham Court Road area into one of London’s premier commercial, cultural and academic districts.
£26 million of investment will be used for the improvements, which will unlock the area’s potential - providing safe and attractive streets with wider tree-lined pavements, boosting businesses and creating public spaces for the community and visitors to enjoy. The project would be delivered in phases and completed by 2018 in time for the opening of Crossrail, when Tottenham Court Road station will have nearly twice the number of visitors as Heathrow every day. Five public spaces would either be created or improved along with a brand new park. A total of 18,000 square metres of new public realm will be created along with nearly 300 new trees planted in the area. The one-way system will be replaced with two-way, tree-lined streets, some protected cycle tracks and improved public spaces. The scheme will also improve safety, reduce congestion and pollution, widen pavements and improve access to public transport.
Detailed information can be found at the exhibition in NLA's galleries. Visitors can find consultation questionnaires adjacent to the exhibition, and are encouraged to contact the council with any queries.
Council staff will be available at The Building Centre from 5pm-9pm, Monday 7 July to discuss the project.
