Tottenham Court Road

Tottenham Court Road is a major road in central London, running from St Giles Circus (the junction of Oxford Street and (Charing Cross Road) north to Euston Road, near the border of the City of Westminster and the London Borough of Camden, a distance of about three-quarters of a mile. It has for many years been a one-way street: all three lanes are northbound only, the equivalent southbound traffic using Gower Street which runs parallel. It is generally regarded as marking the boundary between Bloomsbury and Fitzrovia, linking Somers Town with Soho at either end. The south end of the road is close to the British Museum and to Centre Point, the West End's tallest building. There are a number of buildings belonging to University College London along the road, and University College Hospital is at the north end of the road at the junction with Euston Road. The road is served by three stations on the London Underground—from south to north these are Tottenham Court Road, Goodge Street and Warren Street—and by numerous bus routes. On 3 June 2014 Camden Council announced plans to reserve the road for buses and bicycles only, during daylight hours from Monday to Saturday. They claim it will make the central London street safer and boost business ahead of the opening of a new Crossrail station in 2018. The current one-way system will be replaced with tree-lined, two-way traffic flows to help cut congestion. Wider pavements, cycle lanes and safer pedestrian crossings will also be installed as part of the £26m plan.
