Crossrail work to hit Oxford Street stores

Retailers on London’s Oxford Street are braced for major disruption next year when one of the street’s busiest sections undergoes building works as part of the construction of Crossrail.

Retailers including Debenhams and Selfridges met last week with the New West End Company (NWEC) and representatives from Crossrail and London Underground to discuss the impact of planned utility works from February to October.

Sections of the road between St Christopher’s Place and Woodstock Street near Bond Street tube station are set to be closed to eastbound traffic on the north side, but pavements will remain open.

However, it is understood the works could affect both the north and south sides of the road, although not at the same time.

NWEC said similar works this year on the east end of Oxford Street near Tottenham Court Road tube station had resulted in a 20% to 25% drop off in footfall over nine months.
