Both Baker Street and Gloucester Place will still run one-way until early 2019 and stay open to traffic during the works.

The works will be done in phases to keep disruption to a minimum.

Deliveries

If you make or receive deliveries in central London, talk to your employees, customers and suppliers ahead of time. You may want to change your delivery schedules to avoid the busiest times, or use alternative routes that avoid busy areas.


Why this is happening

The project, which we're delivering in partnership with Westminster City Council, The Portman Estate and Baker Street Quarter Partnership, is designed to make it safer and easier to get around the area.

Rebalancing road space - reducing the dominance of vehicle traffic - will benefit pedestrians and cyclists, and keep traffic flowing while also discouraging high speeds.
