Well, well, WELL! This is exciting news.....we love the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street but there are big changes on the horizon!
We have all heard for many years that Oxford Street was due a huge cash injection to pedestrianise one of London's most adored shopping districts. It seems that this is finally underway with some compromise and changes due to recent push back from the residents and businesses.
Plans will start at the end of 2021 with both sides of Oxford Street being closed to ALL vehicles (yes, this also means buses and taxi's) making way for a traffic free "piazza" creating an iconic destination in the very heart of London.
TFL are to announce new bus routes around Oxford Circus, Marylebone and Fitzrovia with additional entrances to Oxford Circus underground station being planned to tackle the vast number of passengers (a staggering 84.1 million journeys per year source ) at London's third busiest underground station.
