Transport: let’s get inmidtown moving
Our district is an area of projected growth and intensification over the next two decades and this will inevitably put pressure on the existing transport infrastructure. It’s an issue that will affect everyone who lives, work or visits here. Despite the excellent bus, tube and rail connections, travelling into the area is not always a happy experience, especially during rush hours. Overcrowding and congestion are problems that need to be addressed. We are currently working with local businesses, agencies and experts to look at:
- The impact (and opportunity) of Crossrail
- Options for relieving some of the infrastructural pressure on Bloomsbury, Holborn and St Giles.
- Specific opportunities to improve the experience of Holborn tube station
- Ways to encourage businesses to consider flexible working arrangements for staff (to reduce travel and relieve peak congestion).
