Charing Cross Road

Charing Cross Road, a major carriageway in the West End, is world renowned for its specialist and independent bookshops and antiquarian retailers. In the adjacent St Martin’s and Cecil Court, independent cafés, restaurants, antique, print and art shops can be discovered.

We propose vast improvements to Charing Cross Road, to accommodate the significant uplift in footfall when the Elizabeth line fully opens. The plans outlined in the Placeshaping Strategy would see Charing Cross Road become a treelined boulevard with widened footways, more places for pedestrians to cross, an all green phase diagonal crossing, safer routes for cyclists and a new public space between the National Portrait Gallery.

The benefits of the scheme will include:

  • A new public space and garden
  • More space for pedestrian, as well as al fresco dining
  • Safer routes and junctions for pedestrians and cyclists
  • Better bus journey times
  • Improved air quality
  • More trees and greening
