norman rourke pryme working with West One Infrastructure Services were appointed for the Project Management of the design and implementation of the Wardour Street Streetscape Improvements phase 2. The works involved the improvement of the public realm and streetscape on Wardour Street and Lisle Street to compliment the earlier works to Wardour Street (north) and the improvements to Leicester Square.

Footways have been widened, traditional footway and carriageway materials have been replaced with high quality granite to create shared use spaces and improve accessibility. Street lighting has been moved to buildings and street furniture reduced or relocated to de-clutter the highway. Removable traffic management bollards have been installed to create a pedestrian only zone on Wardour Street and Lisle Street between 12:00hrs and 06:00hrs to compliment the rest of China Town.
