Current Wembley regeneration projects
Regeneration projects led by us. Last updated: May 2019.
North End Road Connection
New highway improvements
Improved accessibility across Wembley Park
A better place to live and work in
Plans are well underway to deliver the regeneration and growth of Wembley. Brent Council’s aim is to create a better place to live and work in, enable residents to live harmoniously with the attractions located in Wembley and visitors to access them easily.
New highway improvements, outlined in the Wembley Area Action Plan adopted in January 2015, were identified to fix the challenges of congestion and accessibility enabling good growth and improving the local environment.
The council will soon start work on connecting North End Road to Bridge Road. This will benefit existing residents by providing an alternative route across Wembley Park to access the North Circular Road, improving the traffic flow in the area. This route will not be affected by event day closures, enabling an available vehicular route at all times - particularly useful for residents of North End Road, who are impacted by the road closures on event days, and bus users.
The contractor delivering the works
VolkerLaser is undertaking the works at North End Road on behalf of Brent Council.
A VolkerLaser team will be on site from June 2019 to start the works, and the project is expected to be completed by early 2020. During this time, the team will endeavour to undertake the works with as minimal disruption to local residents and businesses as possible.
VolkerLaser is part of VolkerWessels UK and are one of the UK’s leading multi-functional contractors. They have a proven track record of success within the highway sector, completing some award-winning civil engineering projects across the last 25 years.

Wembley Housing Zone
Wembley Housing Zone was designated by the Mayor of London on 16 March 2015. The designation, supported by substantial highway and public realm improvements, will help to make a significant contribution to the plans for Wembley by unlocking development and accelerating the delivery of housing, including affordable housing. The Wembley Area Action Plan (WAAP) adopted in January 2015, provides the framework for how Wembley should develop until 2030.
The Council are focussing on key sites in Wembley town centre, with the aspiration of better connecting the town centre with the new development ongoing around Wembley Park. The Council is working with residents, businesses and landowners in the town centre to:
- deliver new homes and jobs
- improve the public realm, enhancing the vitality of the High Road
- improve key junctions in Wembley to make it safer for pedestrains and cyclists including redesign of the existing Wembley triangle junction
- enhance the cultural offer and night time economy.
