Eurovia wins contract to transform London’s busy Tottenham Court Road

Eurovia wins contract to transform London’s busy Tottenham Court Road

Eurovia UK will play a vital part in the transformation of one of the busiest parts of central London after submitting a winning bid to carry out a large part of a major new scheme.

The work will be part of the £35million West End Project (WEP) that is expected to be completed by the mid-March 2020 and help the area cope with the anticipated increase in people following the opening of the new Tottenham Court Road Crossrail station in December this year.

Eurovia Contracting South will replace the current one-way system on Tottenham Court Road, Gower Street, Bloomsbury Street and Charing Cross Road with a two-way street and protected cycle lanes, while wider footpaths and improved lighting, drainage, pedestrian crossings will also be introduced.

Other plans in the WEP include a new public space in front of Shaftsbury Theatre, a park at Alfred Place and a new plaza next to Centre Point to reduce pressure caused by the volume of pedestrians on the busy footpaths.

Neil Huntington, Eurovia Surfacing and Contracting Regional Director, said: “The West End Project will transform one of London’s most congested areas and Eurovia Contracting’s successful bid will ensure the streets around Tottenham Court Road will thrive for many years to come.

“We will aim to keep disruption to a minimum throughout the work which we expect to complete by mid-March 2020, but we are confident that the project will ultimately reduce congestion on roads and footpaths, improving the environment in what is currently one of London’s most polluted areas.

“The next two years will see huge improvements for residents, businesses and visitors to the area and we are proud to be part of the West End Project that, alongside Camden Council and other partner organisations, will see the plans become a reality.”
