Baker Street / Portman Square

Latest News

Drivers and cyclists should remain vigilant and pedestrians should remember to look both ways when crossing the road.  

Currently our team are undertaking maintenance activities. Construction will resume on Monday 8th April as part of Phase 4 of the scheme. Further information will be provided nearer to the time. 

Traffic is still getting accustomed to the new road layout and is expected to continue do so for sometime. Once people become familiar with the layout things should ease.

As part of our Post-Implementation Monitoring Strategy 
we are looking at the issues that have been raised regarding pedestrian crossings at the junction of Gloucester Place and George Street. In terms of York Street, we are monitoring the situation closely and have worked with Transport for London to provide additional green time to York Street. A sign has been installed near the Crawford Street junction to inform northbound traffic to use Gloucester Place. 
Allsop Place Water Fountain

The water fountain on Allsop Place has been successfully restored and re-installed. It is now available to use and provides drinking water.  
Works on Oxford Street

Footway improvement works are taking place along Oxford Street and involve paving renewal. They are not part of the two-way scheme and are instead part of Westminster City Council’s planned preventative maintenance programme. 

Happy to help.
