The West End Project
24 August 2014

The West End Project will transform the Tottenham Court Road area, making it safer and more attractive for residents, boosting business and creating new public spaces.

There will be a big increase in people coming to the area with the opening of the Tottenham Court Road Crossrail station in 2018, and we need to make sure that the area is safe and welcoming.

The one-way system will be replaced with two-way tree-lined streets, some protected cycle lanes and new public space. The scheme will reduce congestion and pollution, widen pavements and make bus journeys quicker.

We have secured £26 million of investment to improve Camden’s West End. The improvements will unlock the area’s potential, boosting business and creating new public spaces for the community and visitors to enjoy.

The project will be delivered by 2018 in time for the opening of Crossrail, when Tottenham Court Road station will be busier than Heathrow Airport.
