Highway Improvement Works on Praed Street

As the much-anticipated Paddington Square development gears up for completion, new road works are set to commence, marking a pivotal moment in the evolution of the Paddington streetscape and one of the final stages of the Paddington Square development.

Starting from 22nd January and lasting until May 2024, there will be highway improvement works on Praed Street. This project, managed by MACE, is designed to enhance the local infrastructure, including the installation of new pedestrian crossings, widening of footways, and resurfacing of the carriageway.

During these works, you can expect some changes in traffic and pedestrian movement around Praed Street:

  • Working Hours: Standard working hours will be Monday to Friday, from 08:00 to 17:30 hrs
  • Traffic Adjustments: Praed Street will be narrowed to a single running lane, managed under temporary traffic signal control.
  • Pedestrian Access: Footpaths will be closed with alternative pedestrian diversions in place. Rest assured, access to businesses will be maintained at all times.
