The Post Building

From the 20th September 2018 we have been working in the area around the Post Building on Museum Street. We are coordinating all our work with the site developers Laing O’Rourke. Our remaining work will take place in the following areas:

  • The junction of New Oxford Street, Museum Street and Bloomsbury Way
  • The sections of footway on High Holborn and New Oxford Street adjacent to the Post Building
  • The footways on both sides of Museum Street, between High Holborn and New Oxford Street

The work involves renewing the traffic signals at the junction, which includes putting in underground ducts. There will also be new dropped kerbs, changes to kerb lines and all the footways in this area will be repaved.

Similar work was completed at the High Holborn junction before Christmas and the new signals were switched on, on the 11th February. That junction now has controlled (push-button operated) pedestrian crossings on all four arms.

Works are well underway on the New Oxford Street/Museum Street/Bloomsbury Way junction. When complete the junction will have a new pedestrian crossing on its Bloomsbury Way arm. Our current programme would see the junction complete by early April.

Works to repave the footway on Museum Street, opposite the Post Building, have been completed to the back half and the front section is on hold while Laing O’Rourke occupy the other side of the road. In the meantime, we have worked alongside Laing to pave the footway next to the building, which is now complete.

The programme for the remaining work is subject to the progress of Laing O’Rourke and adverse weather. The first section of the New Oxford Street footway has now been started and access to complete the opposite side of Museum Street and the High Holborn footway are expected to follow soon.
