A tree-lined ‘Healthy Street’ running from Old Street to Tottenham Court Road, where people stroll, linger and cycle with wider pavements, safe cycle tracks and calmer, safer junctions.
If you live, work or play in the area, we want your support. Sign-up to our mailing list to stay up-to-date with the latest on the Boulevard, and find out how you can help it become a reality.
Old Street, Clerkenwell Road, Theobalds Road, Bloomsbury Way and New Oxford Street are congested, polluted and hostile to those walking and cycling. They feature very high cycling rates, and far too high collision and injury statistics.
Who will benefit?
We all will. Businesses will get increased footfall from customers who want to linger. Residents will suffer less pollution and traffic noise. Pedestrians will benefit from safer crossings and better places to stroll, sit, play. People cycling will benefit from a far safer ride. And bus users will benefit from revamped stops and potentially bus/cycle only sections. We estimate the Boulevard could save millions a year in public health benefits from more people walking and cycling; reduced collisions; less pollution etc.
Boulevard for business
We are currently working with local businesses to study freight servicing and loading needs. We aim to use the London Boulevard to develop innovative, class-leading solutions to the complex problems of providing for pedestrians, those cycling and businesses too, all while reducing emissions and motor vehicle movements in the area.
