The New West End Company are also putting measures in place to keep the local area safe:
There are proposed activities and initiatives that will be put in place across Oxford St, Regent St, Bond St & Mayfair, including road closures and safe travelling routes;
Oxford Street (East & West): bus pull ins and laybys will be barriered to create additional pedestrian space while maintaining access to bus services
Oxford Circus: Road barriers will be installed on north and south side of Regent Street to increase pedestrian space
Regent Street: One lane of traffic in each direction will be closed to vehicles to create wider pedestrian space while maintaining access to bus services
Cleaning: The local streets will be deep cleaned, and they are increasing their Clean Team capacity to work in highly visible ways to enhance cleanliness and provide reassurance for colleagues and customers.
Security: The New West End Security Team will continue to work at full capacity, and they will review personnel capacity daily, in partnership with the Metropolitan Police Service.
Signage & social distancing: New West End Company will provide increased signage across the district to promote social distancing, identify the nearest open spaces and highlight walking distances between key points to reduce reliance on public transport. They will also provide pavement stickers outside stores to enable a district wide, uniformed system for safe queueing.
Hygiene & PPE: New West End Company will install hand cleansing stations throughout our district and will supply face masks for the public and colleagues in the West End. There will be PPE disposal bins for protective wear throughout the area.
