Walking From Cavendish Square To The Marylebone Lane Entrance Of Bond Street Station

I walked from Cavendish Square to the Maylebone Lane entrance Of Bond Street station, taking these pictures as I proceeded.

Note.

  1. It was an easy walk
  2. It took me about seven minutes.
  3. I passed the rear entrances of John Lewis, House of Fraser and Debenhams.

It could be made a bit flatter, by eliminating kerbs

Would this route be a good enough connection between Crossrail and ehe Proposed Development Under Cavendish Square?

Could a pedestrian tunnel be built from Cavendish Square to Marylebone Lane with a travelator?

Or why not just pedestrianise Herietta Street and put a travelator, where the roads used to be?

It’s a big expensive investment under Cavendish Square and they can afford to make it the best.

  2. If such a project was planned in happier economic times for retailers, I could imagine all 3 department stores campaigning for basement level connections to such a pedestrian connection to Cavendish sq.

    Interesting that you included a photograph of the former NCP car park now being torn down for residential development, reducing self driving car journeys into the area (but increasing taxi usage)

    I don’t know if you knew that Mayor of London wanted to pedestrianise that end of Oxford Street which would have displaced traffic onto that street.

    (Proposal blocked by Westminster council, IMO the idea was ill judged in terms of unintended consequences of large outdoor level pedestrian area leading to increased crime and scofflaw cyclists/escooters, and poor/unclear provision for disabled transferring from buses or cars to shops).
