TfL would like your views on proposed bus route changes in Fitzrovia

In 2014, Camden Council carried out a public consultation on proposed road layout changes in the Tottenham Court Road and Gower Street areas as part of the West End Project.  Proposals included transforming Tottenham Court Road and Gower Street from one way roads into two-way roads and introducing bus-and-cycle-only operation in Tottenham Court Road on Monday to Saturday between 8am to 7pm.  A number of public space improvements were also put forward to enhance the area for visiting and retail activity.

The overarching aims of the proposals included:

  • Reducing the impact of fast moving traffic
  • Improved safety for pedestrians and cyclists
  • Reducing air pollution from vehicle traffic
  • Preparing the area for an increase in pedestrians expected with the opening of Crossrail at Tottenham Court Road station
  • Simplifying the bus network and improving access to and from the area

Have you say before the consultation closes on Sunday, 24 July.

The overall response to the West End Project and Camden Council’s 2014 consultation  was favourable and Camden Council anticipate starting construction on the scheme later this year (2016).
