St Paul's Gyratory

Date updated: 25/01/2023

The City of London Corporation is developing three options to transform the streets and public realm on the St Paul's gyratory system which was introduced in the 1970's to prioritise motor traffic over people who walk and cycle. These options are explained in the three PDF files.

Our survey in December 2022 gathered information on how people use and feel about this area. The results have enabled us to develop the three options and they will be reported to the relevant Committees and the public later this year.

The project area stretches from the Museum of London roundabout in the North, to St Paul's underground station. The project aims to make the streets safer for people who walk and cycle and to introduce a greener, more pleasant environment. It will deliver key elements of the City Corporation's Transport Strategy, Climate Action Strategy and the Guildhall Area Strategy. 

The project team is working with two developments in the project area: 81 Newgate Street (the former BT site) and a potential new development at London Wall West. The two developments offer a major opportunity to add value and increase funding to the project, in turn helping to address road safety and public realm issues in the area.
