  • Oxford Street District Place Strategy and Delivery Plan

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    Westminster Council says:

    The draft strategy sets out a series of ambitious, exciting and also deliverable recommendations to significantly improve the district as a whole, with 96 projects across 87 different streets and spaces. We’ve also identified nine zones that reflect varying character from Marble Arch to Tottenham Court Road. The strategy was developed from previous consultation responses, proposed plans and a process of engagement in order to identify and understand concerns and ideas.

    All of the proposals are our ideas as to what could be done to improve the area. Subject to the feedback we receive in the consultation, the council will then carry out the detailed technical work that would be needed to turn those preferred proposals into reality.

  • Oxford Street Transformation - 2nd consultation

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    TfL says...

    Overview
    In our last consultation in April 2017, we explained that our vision is to transform Oxford Street into the world’s best outdoor shopping experience and an unrivalled place to live, work and visit. We received nearly 12,000 responses. There was support, as well as some understandable concerns, and many respondents indicated the key issues they felt we should consider. We have listened very carefully to the issues raised and in the months since then we have discussed our vision with a large number of local residents groups, businesses and others to help us understand such issues in more detail. As a result, we have developed a set of detailed proposals for the transformation of the street and the entire surrounding district. We genuinely believe these proposals respond positively to the concerns raised by some and would enable us to deliver a significantly improved Oxford Street and the wider Oxford Street area for everyone.

    Our vision is not simply to transform Oxford Street: the proposals we have developed are for the entire district. They would:
    Make it much easier to walk throughout the area
    Create beautiful, safe, accessible and inspiring public spaces full of life and spectacle to address some of the very serious and pressing issues of poor road safety and air quality in the Oxford Street area
    Support businesses to grow and respond to the district as it transforms and create new jobs
    Equally protect and enhance the quality of life for residents in the area
    Support the introduction of the Elizabeth line to the area
    Our proposals represent one of the most significant investments in central London for many years. This is a once in a generation opportunity to transform a key area in central London.

    For the first time ever we are substantially reducing the number of buses in the area. This has allowed us to bring forward these proposals.

    Doing nothing to transform the Oxford Street district would mean that traffic and pedestrian congestion on Oxford Street and in the surrounding area would worsen. Transformation gives us an opportunity to address the very poor air quality in the area, and reduce the number of collisions on Oxford Street in which people are hurt. It would give us the opportunity to create a network of truly world-class and inspiring public spaces, in which businesses could thrive and grow. It would deliver investment for transformational improvements to the entire area.

    Our proposals set out how we would improve the look and feel of the Oxford Street West district, and changes to how people could access and use the space. All of the proposals are intended to transform the way that the West End feels and functions for everybody. We have made no decisions on whether to proceed and we will not do so until you have had your say and we have had chance to consider the points you raise.

  • Circle Line North Quietway in Westminster

    Created by Colin Wing // 6 threads

    This is the route of the Circle Line North Quietway in Westminster. It bears some resemblance to the existing London Cycle Network Route marked '40' on the map; but it misses Paddington Station, as well as some difficult one-way sections between Paddington and Crawford Street.

  • Quietway 19 - Cambridge Circus

    Created by Colin Wing // 4 threads

    There has never been a satisfactory cycle route from Soho into Covent Garden. The right turn from Old Compton Street into Charing Cross Road is prohibited. Moor Street lands cyclists at an inconvenient part of the junction. Using Greek Street and Shaftesbury Avenue means a difficult right turn into Charing Cross Road.

    In April 2015 Westminster's contractors are consulting the public about improvements to Cambridge Circus. The consultation period ends on 8th May 2015. Subject to approvals, it is planned to start the works on site in August 2015 and to be completed by February 2016.

    The scheme takes into account the need for Quietway 19 to pass through the junction between Soho and Covent Garden.
