Important update from Westminster City Council on the Baker Street two-way work

Westminster City Council is nearing the completion of a two-way traffic system at Baker Street and Gloucester Place.

Work is now finished on key junctions and the surrounding streets. Resurfacing works have also been undertaken on many of the junctions. The next stage will see a series of temporary road closures to allow two-way traffic flow to be introduced, before the final works are completed.

The switch to two-way working on Baker Street and Gloucester Place is proposed to be undertaken from 21-24 February, subject to suitable weather conditions. Both roads will need to be closed in phases during this period, whilst road markings are painted and temporary central islands are installed. As this work is dependent on the weather, the switch could potentially be delayed if there is bad weather such as heavy rain.

As a result, the decision on whether the work can be undertaken on 21-24 February will be confirmed on Tuesday 19 February, based on the weather forecast.

Any changes to the programme will be communicated through project email updates, the project website and social media. If you do not currently receive these email updates, please subscribe and visit the project website. Social media and newsletter will be the main way to remain informed with the latest information.

Please also see this document that provides more detailed information, including the phasing of the road closure, diversions, other methods of travel by public transport, alternative dates if bad weather should cause a delay and contact details for the project team.

Westminster City Council apologises for any disruption during this period and thanks local residents, businesses and organisations for their continued patience and support. The delivery of a safer, more accessible road network and improved public realm is vital for residents and businesses in the local community.
