Piccadilly Circus
The scheme follows the same diagonal crossing approach used on Atkin’s recent redevelopment of Oxford Circus and will be funded by Transport for London, the Crown Estate and Westminster City Council. Re-introducing two way streets from Piccadilly Circus along Piccadilly, St James's Street and Pall Mall should free up Piccadilly Circus and reduce the traffic passing through the St James’s area. The improvements will run from Green Park tube station along Piccadilly to Piccadilly Circus and through St James's Street to St James's Palace all the way along Pall Mall up to Haymarket. Westminster hopes the benefits of the new scheme through reduced congestion on both the roads and pavements will reap similar rewards for the area in the same way as Oxford Circus.

    An iconic spot in London yet not fit for modern times where traffic piles up until a gridlock develops. Worth visiting, not on a taxi.
