Shelton Street– Pedestrian and Streetscape Improvements

Closed 1 Feb 2013

Opened 24 Dec 2012


The London Borough of Camden and Westminster City Council are working together to improve the street environment along Shelton Street. This would be achieved by introducing raised crossing points and dropped kerbs for improving accessibility and prioritising pedestrian movement along the street.

We are seeking your views on the following proposals:

  • Widen the footway and install a dropped kerb on Drury Lane opposite the existing wider footway in front of number 167 to assist pedestrians crossing at the Shelton Street alleyway.
  • Provide step-free crossings at the junction of Endell Street and Shelton Street and widen the footway at the corners.
  • Make the following changes to parking in Endell Street to both improve visibility for pedestrians when crossing and to provide more room for turning vehicles to manoeuvre:
    • Relocate the existing disabled bay on Endell Street outside number 16 to the opposite side of the road next to the existing disabled bay.
    • Remove the no longer used business bay outside 14/16 Endell Street.
    • Relocate the resident’s bay from outside number 18 Endell Street to outside number 19/21 and provide a new second resident’s bay outside 14/16 Endell Street
    • Reduce the pay-and-display bays from four to three and locate them outside 16-20 Endell Street.
  • Relocate westwards the raised crossing point at the junction of Shelton Street and Neal Street, providing a step-free environment from Neal Street to Old Brewers Yard.
  • Provide a step-free crossing at the junction of Shelton Street and Langley Street.
  • Provide dropped kerbs or resurface across all car park/private entrances as appropriate to improve walking along Shelton Street.
