Hyde Park Corner

St Matthews Street

What has changed?

  • Pedestrian railings removed allowing the entire street environment to be appreciated as a place rather than as a thoroughfare for vehicles
  • New cycle facilities on St George's Street and St Matthews Street
  • Traffic signals have been upgraded
  • Improved pedestrian and cycle crossing at the end of Westgate Street
  • Lower part of St George's Street resurfaced
  • The crossing is now a Toucan crossing (for pedestrians and cyclists) with the middle section being wider to allow cycles to manoeuvre the crossing and gain better access into the town centre
