Marylebone - Baker Street Two Way Scheme Update

Please note the following information is from the Baker Street Two Communication Team, Not The Marylebone Association.

Please contact them with any queries


Dear all

Baker Street and Gloucester Place Two Way Scheme and how it may impact you

This week
Works started as planned on Monday 24th July and FM Conway have made good progress at the junctions of Blandford Street/Gloucester Place, Bickenhall Street/Gloucester Place and Ivor Place/Gloucester Place.

Parking and Diversions
As you are aware some parking suspensions will come into effect. Plans are attached. All parking suspension notices that are part of our works include the sentence ‘footway works’. Also, as part of our scheme for the next 7 weeks BT are undertaking utility works in the footway outside Portman Square Gardens and three parking bays are being suspended to accommodate excavations and materials.

There are other works going on in the local area, for example Thames Water have suspended some parking (ref utility works SUSSM20071702) in York Street as part of their operations. You can find out more about Thames Water’s works, and how this may impact you at: https://www.thameswater.co.uk/bakerstreet

Further information about diversions and parking will be made available as we move forward with the programme.

Basements
Our basement survey team will continue to survey private basements along Gloucester Place to evaluate if footway re-paving works can be undertaken safely. Everyone affected should have received a pre-notification letter and will be contacted by our basement team.



Next week
Work begins at the junction of Melcombe Place, Great Central Street, Boston Place on the Monday 31st July (the fourth junction to be worked on). The bus stop outside the station with services westbound will be suspended. Next week the FM Conway teams will also continue their work on the first three junctions.
