Marylebone Station is a major transport hub where mainline, commuter and underground train services, and taxis, buses and cars all interchange. On top of which, literally millions of pedestrians use the streets immediately around it each year. For years, your BDS ward councillors have been facilitating dialogue between local residents and businesses and the Council, Chiltern Railways and Transport for London (TfL) to find ways to accommodate the often conflicting demands on the confined space. The occurrence of three accidents near the junction of Melcombe Place and Harewood Avenue this Spring brought the issues to the forefront.
