Leadenhall Street and Cornhill

Leadenhall Street and Cornhill will be closed until Sunday 31 March 2019 to facilitate collaborative works. Diversion routes will be marked by signs.

Silk Street lift

The public lift at Speed House on Silk Street is out of service. The repair will take a few weeks because parts need to be obtained. We will advise when it is back in action. There are lifts at Moor House and Wood Street.

Special events taking place on the City of London roads

We organise and host events throughout the year and occasionally we may have to close roads to all traffic for a certain amount of time. We aim to keep disruptions at a minimum and to reopen the roads as soon as possible after the event.
