The West End Project is being built by the London Borough of Camden. TfL have part-funded this scheme.

Tottenham Court Road was switched two-way traffic in April 2019.

These are the main changes that affect drivers:

  • Tottenham Court Road is now two-way
  • The new southbound lane will be for buses and cyclists only at all times until spring 2020
  • All traffic can continue to travel northbound until the entire scheme is completed in spring 2020

There are more details and maps on Camden's project website.

Pedestrians

Freight, deliveries and servicing

Loading bays will need to be suspended at times for works. These temporary changes will be clearly signed.

The project team is continuing to work with local businesses to provide advice and to ensure that you can make and receive deliveries during construction.

If you make or receive deliveries in the area, talk to your customers and suppliers now to see if there are changes you need to make to your deliveries or collections, such as moving them to outside the restricted periods. Find out more about changing your deliveries.


About the scheme

Work will be completed in spring 2020.
