WHAT HAPPENS NEXT
Following the switch to two-way, there will be a period of six weeks when works will be paused to allow traffic to get used to the new layout.
After this, the remaining works will be completed, including:
• building permanent central islands
• resurfacing on BakerStreet between Dorset Street and Blandford Street
• applying coloured, high friction surfacing at all junctions
• works at Portman Mews South
All works are scheduled to be finished by June 2019.
