Gower Street resurfacing works

NOTE UPDATED DATES – Last updated 18/11/19

We will begin resurfacing Gower Street from the 25th November. To do this parts of Gower Street will be closed with additional closures to adjoining roads. Pedestrian crossing closures and diversions will also be in place. All the details can be found in the table below, should any changes be made to the programme the table will be updated.

This work will require noisy work to break up the road surface and involve large machinery moving around the area to lay the new road surface. Disruption to traffic and long pedestrian diversions should be expected. We will be working from 8am – 6pm Mondays to Fridays.

We will return to resurface the final sections of Gower Street / Bloomsbury Street in early 2020.
