We are hugely grateful to those that have taken part in this second public consultation, with over 500 responses received on a range of topics including perceived traffic congestion, impact on residential streets, air quality and the proposed cycling facilities. The results of this second public consultation are presented in full in our response report.
Following the completion of the second public consultation and the feedback gathered on several proposed alterations to the initial design, I have taken the decision along with other responsible Cabinet Members to proceed with detailed design and traffic order consultation, which can be can be found here.
This is a project which will bring significant benefits to the local area, not only in improving traffic flow, but ensuring a safer travelling experience for all. The proposed project will open up a part of Westminster which historically has been difficult to traverse, creating a more connected and welcoming area for residents, businesses and visitors alike.
The next stage of the project will be to undertake a formal Traffic Management Order (TMO) consultation to seek views on proposed changes to parking and loading restrictions. The project team will be in touch shortly with further detail on that consultation.
