Cycle Superhighway 11

Public consultation on Cycle Superhighway 11, running through Regent's Park into Portland Place, is due to begin shortly.

Marylebone has the worst air quality in London and we (The Marylebone Association) will be challenging the candidates to explain why residents, schoolchildren and hospital patients should be subjected to even more lethal pollution.

North Marylebone Pollution Survey

North Marylebone Pollution Survey

A core group of residents conducted a citizen science survey of air quality across north Marylebone on behalf of the North Marylebone Traffic Group. Below is a report outlining the findings.
Editor's Notes: (1)The figures below are NOT official figures and need to be treated with some caution. (2) They ONLY show the North Marylebone area but they do seem to confirm that there is a serious pollution problem throughout Marylebone, not just on the major roads.

Baker Street Subway Closed for Renovation

Baker Street Subway Closed for Renovation

The Baker Street subway on Marylebone Road is now closed for renovation. Whilst the works to transform the Subway at Baker Street Station continue, you may want to avoid the Marylebone Road pedestrian crossing and use the Chiltern Street Subway instead (open weekdays from 07.00 – 19.00). There is directional signage within Baker Street Station so you can find your way. The Marylebone Road Subway will re-open as the transformed 'Wonderpass' this winter. For more information on the new subway click here
