The new face of regent street

Reshaping Regent Street – Image Gallery and Plans

Set to complete before Christmas, the new designs will deliver significant improvements for safety, accessibility and air quality, introducing:

  • Wider pavements – creating approximately 5,000 square meters of additional space for pedestrians, to improve visitors’ experience, support social distancing and improve accessibility.
  • Reduced traffic – with road space cut to a single vehicle lane in each direction. 
  • Improved provision for cyclists – including the introduction of cycle lanes and new cycle parking hubs and stands.  
  • Enhancing bus stops – with accessible boarding and space for waiting.

Sustainable tree planting and greenery will also be introduced helping to boost biodiversity, improve air quality, and further enhance Regent’s Street’s iconic John Nash design. New seating will also be installed, creating places for people to pause and rest. 

This is the latest initiative in The Crown Estate’s continued investment in its Central London portfolio, improving the experience for Regent Street’s shoppers, residents, workers and visitors. We plan to implement these changes over an 18 month trial period and will be seeking your feedback throughout to ensure your views are taken on board.
