Camden Council consultation on proposals for area near UCL Bloomsbury campus
2 July 2014
Camden Council is currently consulting on various proposals
affecting the area around the UCL Bloomsbury campus. 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.
