By reinstating two-way traffic on East Carriage Drive - the current northbound carriageway, Park Lane's Mayfair side can be pedestrianised to become a major new pedestrian and cycle-friendly public realm for London. More than 1000 metres of new public realm, west-facing onto Hyde Park, replacing a traffic highway in central London. It can become part of a green Scenic Route connecting Trafalgar Square with Marble Arch, via St James's Park, Buckingham Palace, Green Park, Constitution Hill, Hyde Park Corner, Apsley House, and Park Lane boulevard.

What we'll deliver:

  • More than 1000 metres of highest quality public realm in London

Why it's a great idea:

For pedestrians in London, Park Lane has been a miserable experience for decades - a noisy and polluted place with narrow footpath, to be avoided as much as possible. With this replanning based on Park Lane's landscape and its history - since at least 1799 - it will become one of the most pleasant places in London to walk: a tree-lined boulevard more than 1000 metres long, with no motor traffic between the existing line of mature London Plane trees and the buildings of Mayfair. The greatly improved environment will be very attractive to pedestrians, and could also accommodate major outdoor hospitality west-facing onto Hyde Park. Park Lane can and should be considered as a companion to Oxford Street - which it meets at Marble Arch. Major improvement to the attractiveness of Park Lane will lead to a significant improvement in how people appreciate Oxford Street's overall context.

Steps to get it done:

  • The basic scheme has already been prepared with Computer Aided Design
