Site: Flyover & subway (2 memorials)

W2, Marylebone Road, Joe Strummer Subway

February 2011 and Westminster Council are considering closing the subway.

July 2017: Thanks Richard Ruth for reporting that the Strummer plaque is still there.

2018: Subway closed.

December 2022: Hoarding around the building on this corner encompasses the subway so it is now inaccessible and impossible to see whether the plaque remains.

March 2024: Ian Visits reported that the subway is to be filled in and to operate as a sustainable urban drainage system, a rain garden.

We've marked the plaque as lost.  If anyone sees it reappear please let us know.
