West End project

Developing the scheme

Before the project was approved by our Cabinet in 2015, a formal consultation was carried out with local residents, businesses and groups to give people the opportunity to comment on the proposals.

In the video below, Councillor Phil Jones, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Transport and Planning outlines the vision behind the West End Project.

The following information outlines the problems the scheme will address and more about how the scheme has been developed.

The problems

  • 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
