Gas Works

Affecting Gracechurch Street by London Bridge

A new gas main is needed at Gracechurch Street by London Bridge. Replacing the old main will be undertaken in three phases through to September 2018.

  • Gracechurch Street and London Bridge closed northbound.
  • Cannon Street and Eastcheap closed eastbound.
  • King William Street closed southbound from Bank Junction to London Bridge.

This first phase will last until early June 2018. All other major streets works in the area have been halted. The partial reopening of Bank Junction will remain in place and we continue to work with TfL on traffic signal timings in the area. For further information please go to the Gas works page or the Cadent Community Relations Team at
