DSDHA draws up plans to transform Tottenham Court Road
Camden Council has unveiled a £26million scheme by DSDHA to transform London’s Tottenham Court Road
The masterplan will create new public spaces and aims to cut traffic and congestion in the area ahead of the opening of the new Crossrail station in 2018.
The project will replace the one-way system on Tottenham Court Road and Gower Street with two-way tree-lined streets. While wider pavements and safe and direct pedestrian crossings will be installed on Tottenham Court Road and New Oxford Street.
The project will create four new public spaces, including a new pedestrianized plaza at the foot of Centre Point next to the new Crossrail station. A new park will also be built in the heart of the West End in Alfred Place.
A public consultation on the proposals will run from 9 June to 18 July.
If the project is approved by councillors, construction will begin in early 2015 and be completed by 2018.
