Camden Council consultation on proposals for area near UCL Bloomsbury campus

2 July 2014

Photo; Camden Council Camden Council is currently consulting on various proposals affecting the area around the UCL Bloomsbury campus.

Gower st Camden's 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".Under the proposals the current one-way system in Gower Street and Tottenham Court Road will be replaced with "two-way tree-lined streets, some protected cycle lanes and new public space".

The proposals will significantly enhance the public realm around the campus and complements a number of our own Transforming UCL projects. Whilst Gower Street would become two-way, provision of pedestrian crossings would be increased and in particular an improved crossing between the Main Quad and the Cruciform Building and wider pavements in north Gower Street would be to UCL's benefit.

Full details - and the opportunity to comment on the proposals - can be found at http://www.wearecamden.org/westendproject/.
