Gower Street transformation to fully two-way to traffic complete

Another key milestone will be achieved this May in the progress of the West End Project when Gower Street, between Grafton Way and Euston Road, becomes two-way for all traffic from Saturday 21 May.

This means the whole length of Gower Street/Bloomsbury Street will now be permanently two-way to traffic.

As the largest transformational scheme in the borough, the West End Project is changing not just how people travel in the Tottenham Court Road area, but how it looks and feels. Issues, which have affected the area for some time, are being addressed, including traffic congestion, a lack of public open space and poor air quality.

“The transformation of Gower Street to two-way traffic is another important step as the West End Project comes closer to completion.

“This now means that two-way traffic will run the length of Gower Street and Bloomsbury Street between Euston Road and Shaftesbury Avenue.

“In advance of these final changes the council will be working on Gower Street and the Euston Road slip road to make changes to the road markings over the weekend of the 14 and 15 May.”
