Marylebone High Street (Paddington Street / Devonshire Street) expected closure till November
No sooner do we finally get to the end of the Baker Street 2 Way roadworks than we are faced with a summer of road closures on Marylebone High Street.
Roadworks to implement the Marylebone Low Emissions Neighbourhood Scheme are expected at the north end of the High Street until November 2019. The works will be particularly disruptive for south and west bound traffic. As TfL would say - "plan ahead and allow extra time for your journey."
What you can expect: queued traffic on Beaumont Street, Devonshire Street, New Cavendish Street and Upper Wimpole Street/Devonshire Place.
For a three week period access to Paddington Street from the High Street will also be subject to a full road closure. Details of the works planned can be found on the diagram below.
In summary, the works include the reconstruction of the footway and carriageway resurfacing, installation of new zebra crossings and sustainable drainage pits. Some footways will be temporarily closed during the works and pedestrians will be redirected onto temporary footways on the carriageway, which will be protected by barriers. Pedestrian access to all shops and buildings, we are told, will be maintained at all times.
We understand that the current road closure on Paddington Street will be lifted on Thursday and two way traffic restored.
This Saturday Nottingham Street is closed for a crane movement and Pride will impact Portland Place. Please don't be tempted by rat-running in Devonshire Place Mews there is a camera to prevent right turns onto Marylebone High Street.
Finally, a reminder that Hinde Street, off Manchester Square, remains closed until 19 July 2019 and there are roadworks on Manchester Street until the end of August to install a new raised zebra crossing facility, including a footway buildout.
