Baker Street Two Way Scheme

Baker Street Two Way Scheme aims to transform Baker Street and Gloucester Place into pleasant streets where people can get about easily and safely, relax and spend time.

The aim of the project is to reduce the dominance of traffic along Baker Street and Gloucester Place which divides up the area, creating access and safety problems.

The evidence shows that one way traffic down Baker Street and up Gloucester Place, which often resemble urban motorways, is at the heart of these problems. The wide carriageways encourage high traffic speeds, particularly during quieter periods of the day. When traffic volumes are highest during the peak periods, there is congestion southbound on Baker Street approaching Marylebone Road and Oxford Street and northbound on Gloucester Place approaching Marylebone Road.

By reintroducing two way traffic flow along Baker Street and Gloucester Place and complementary improvements to the public realm in the area, the project will make the whole area more pedestrian friendly and accessible and restore the unique Marylebone character.

The Baker Street Two Way project is being delivered by Westminster City Council and Transport for London. The project is also supported by the Baker Street Quarter Partnership and The Portman Estate.
