Look both ways!

2 April 2019

There will be changes to traffic flows and buses on Tottenham Court Road over the Easter weekend. Read more about them here.

West End Project improvements

On Saturday 20 April, Tottenham Court Road will change from one-way to two-way traffic. At the same time, all buses (and bus stops!) will be moved from Gower Street and Bloomsbury Street to Tottenham Court Road with other traffic mainly being allowed only for access.

The changes are part of the West End Project (WEP) is a £35m public realm refurbishment project being undertaken by Camden Council. The programme of work will improve the roads, cycleway and pedestrian areas in the West End, many of which are in and around UCL’s Bloomsbury campus.

Pedestrians crossing the road should remember to use the pedestrian crossings, look both ways and take extra care as road traffic gets used to the new system. Read more about the West End Project improvements on UCL Estates' dedicated page.
