The City of London Corporation supports humanitarian aid in Ukraine
All Change at Bank project
The All Change at Bank project looks at the future of the area around Bank Station which will re-open at the end of 2022 after an upgrade. The City of London Corporation wants to improve the pedestrian environment and provide a fitting setting for the iconic buildings at the heart of the Square Mile.
There has been significant pedestrian and cycling growth in the area in recent years which the physical environment does not accommodate. With expected continuing growth from nearby developments and the station capacity upgrade, the project aims to deliver change at the junction by the end of 2023 by:
- Continuing to reduce casualties by simplifying the junction
- Reducing pedestrian crowding levels
- Improving air quality
- Improving the perception of place, as a place to spend time in rather than pass through
To reprioritise space across the junction and to build on the temporary work completed in September 2020. The proposal is to further restrict motor vehicle movement on three of the arms, 24/7. This will deliver a simplified junction layout and provide the opportunity to deliver substantial improvements for pedestrian and cycling movement across the area.
We held a public consultation on the proposals in Spring 2021.
The was a public consultation from 29 March -10 May 2021 and the Planning and Transportation Committee considered the result in September 2021.
