Councillors visit Baker Street Two Way project

Thu, 14/09/2017

Westminster councillors paid a visit to Baker Street to see the progress being made to transform the area.

Works are underway to turn Baker Street and Gloucester Place into a two-way system.

The Baker Street Two Way project aims to enhance the area by focusing on pedestrians and cyclists, reducing the dominance of traffic, adding greenery and ensuring the streets are safer and easier to access.

Cllr Danny Chalkley, Cabinet Member for City Highways, was joined by Marylebone High Street Councillor Karen Scarborough and Bryanston and Dorset Square Councillor Julia Alexander on the visit, on Tuesday, September 12.

Cllr Chalkley said: “It was great to see how far along the project has come in less than two months. Although we have some way to go and the works will cause disruption, the project team are working hard to deliver this transformation as smoothly as possible.

“Soon pedestrians, cyclists and motorists will all benefit from safer and more welcoming streets.”
