Edgware Road Partnership

A Better Streetscape

The Partnership will work with Westminster City Council and Transport for London to reduce levels of street clutter and rationalise signage, minimising the number of columns and signs wherever possible.

Edgware Road has 42 telephone boxes between the Marylebone Flyover and Marble Arch, far in excess of what a street this length requires. We will work with telecoms providers, Transport for London and Westminster City Council to reduce the number of telephone boxes on Edgware Road, which currently offer shelter to anti-social behaviour such as begging, carry excessive advertising in some cases and can interrupt the footway. They are sometimes in a poor state of repair and not in operation, playing host to cards advertising vice services.

The Partnership will work with businesses on Edgware Road and Westminster City Council to improve commercial waste management and recycling, to reduce the impact of waste left on the footway. We will also seek to ensure that cleansing levels are maintained, with a particular emphasis on tackling waste levels during the evening.

Edgware Road’s many shops and restaurants provide an exciting frontage. The Partnership will encourage businesses to improve their shopfronts and displays, showcasing local best practice through a design guide factsheet.

As a main arterial route Edgware Road carries numerous buried services and utilities. The Partnership will work closely with Transport for London and local businesses to ensure utility companies that fail to reinstate the highway or footway promptly and neatly will be reported. We will make it easier for local businesses to report street defects and non-compliance by utility companies to Transport for London.

The Partnership has been working closely with Transport for London to bring forward repairs, complete current paving and street lighting replacement work and to co-ordinate streetscape improvements. We will encourage Transport for London to prioritise urgent repairs that improve road and pedestrian safety.

The Edgware Road area benefits from access to ten cycle hire docking stations, plus other cycle parking facilities. The Partnership will seek to review the levels, location and suitability of local cycle parking provision, to encourage more users of Edgware Road to access the area by bicycle.
