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 Gardens for residents, workers and visitors.

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

The enhancements will include

  • provision of a level access to lower garden from Salter's Gardens

Construction programme and phasing

Works are being delivered in a number of phases 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.

Scheduled street closures

Junction of Wood Street and London Wall

Partial closure of the junction will be scheduled for Spring 2018, dates to be confirmed.

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).
