Westminster City Council is to hold an exhibition of plans to create an east-west cycling quietway through Fitzrovia and Marylebone.

Westminster City Council is proposing a Quietway Route from Edgware Road to Fitzrovia.

The section of this route being consulted on within the City of Westminster is approximately 2km in length. The streets affected by these proposals are Harrowby Street, Seymour Place, Crawford Street, Paddington Street, Nottingham Place, Nottingham Street, Marylebone High Street, Devonshire Street, Great Portland Street and Carburton Street.

In Great Portland Street, the council is proposing to rearrange the street layout to enable two-way cycling, and a new traffic signal to help cyclists and pedestrians cross the road. Changes to parking bays and kerbside restrictions will also be made.

The plans will allow two-way cycling along Carburton Street to help create a link for cycling between Camden and Westminster, especially for less confident cyclists.

As part of the consultation, Westminster will be holding two public exhibitions for people to attend and learn about the route. The plans — which are also online — will give people the chance to view the detailed designs, as well as meet the project team and discuss the project.

Quietway Route from Edgware Road to Fitzrovia. Public exhibition: Marylebone Library, Macintosh House, 54 Beaumont Street, W1G 6DW. Tuesday 29 September, 4-8pm; Saturday 3 October, 10am-4pm.
