Evening Standard: "Midtown revamp to create ‘premier cultural district’ for London"

Link to Evening Standard

"London’s 'Midtown' between the West End and the City will be transformed into the capital’s most vibrant cultural district under a masterplan unveiled today.

"Urban designer and architect Sir Terry Farrell said the vision will link Oxford Street in the west and Cheapside in the east to create a continuous shopping boulevard across central London.

"The plans would start with a makeover of the 'dysfunctional' Holborn and New Oxford Street artery, scrapping the one-way gyratories that have turned them into inner city motorways, introducing cycle routes, and giving pedestrians priority at increased numbers of crossing points."
