Listen to the people on Marylebone traffic shake-up

London Assembly member Murad Qureshi has written to the West End Extra to call for residents to have their say on plans to return Baker Street and Gloucester Place to two-way working:

“Marylebone residents are right to be concerned about plans to make Baker Street and Gloucester Place accept two-way traffic.  

The current proposals from Transport for London and Westminster Council run the risk of pushing traffic into neighbouring residential streets creating new rat-runs and making them more polluted, less safe and noisier as drivers attempt to avoid congestion. 

While we should, of course, take the time to let residents have their say, it is essential that TfL and the Council have their ears open to the views of local people and take those fully into account before embarking on a plan that could cost them dearly.
