The Trial

The trial in Tavistock Place and Torrington Place started on 23rd November 2015 and should last for up to eighteen months. Now that the trial has been in place for nearly a year, Camden Council is consulting local residents, businesses and regular users of the street on the changes. See the consultation ===>

When the results of the consultation are known, a decision will be made as to whether the changes should be made permanent. This is expected in March 2017.

Tavistock Place –Torrington Place has been made one-way eastbound for motor traffic while the south side of the carriageway has become a protected westbound cycle lane. The former two-way protected cycle track is now operating as a one-way eastbound cycle track.

Between Tottenham Court Road and Gower Street

Torrington Place was already one way westbound . A protected westbound cycle lane has been installed on the south side of the carriageway, while the former two-way protected cycle track is now operating as a one-way eastbound cycle track.
