Montage of London Wall

The City of London Corporation is delivering highway and public realm works around the new London Wall Place Development. The scheme will deliver a high quality public realm in the surrounding streets and open spaces that complements the development and caters for the future growth of pedestrians in the area.

The works will

  • Enable safe access to the new offices for pedestrians and road users
  • Provide new pedestrian connections through the site between London Wall and Moor Lane
  • Enhance and widen footways and crossings for pedestrians
  • Rejuvenate and enlarge St Alphage Garden for residents, workers and visitors.

The full cost of the works isbeing met by the developer, Brookfield, as part of its planning obligations.

Construction programme and phasing

Works have been delivered in 8 different phases over a 14 month period, with works programmed to be completed in late 2017.

The construction phasing have been designed to minimise the impact of the construction activity on residents and local traffic. The traffic gate on Moor Lane will only remain open if Wood Street is closed.

The majority of the highway works will be carried out during the hours of 8am-6pm Monday to Friday and 8am-1pm Saturday. Local residents will be informed in advance of any works outside of these hours. Every effort will be made to keep noise and disruption to a minimum.

City Highwalks

​A network of highwalks and bridges through the site is being constructed as part of the developer's planning obligations. The planned highwalk network and its connections are on the Proposed Walkways Key Plan (85KB).


​The scheme was developed in consultation with a Working Party made up of local area representatives and takes into consideration the changing needs in the area as a result of new developments. The Working Party consisted of representatives from a number of organisations set out in this London Wall Place S278 Working Party table (12KB).

A wider public consultation was undertaken in 2016. The results were analysed and presented in the London Wall Place report (750KB) and contributed to the final detailed design which was presented to the necessary Committees in September 2016.
