Lunchtime streets progress


15 March 2019

The City of London Corporation has revealed more detail of its plan to ban vehicle movements on some streets at lunchtime, making them safer for walking and cycling (LTT 16 Mar 18). 

The initiative will be piloted on St Mary Axe, a street with high concentrations of pedestrians, cyclists and delivery vehicles. 

Ian Hughes, the Corporation’s assistant director of highways, said deliveries would be retimed to create space for cycling workshops, street art, music and other activities. The event is due to take place over one week in August between 11.30 and 14.00. 

The Chancery Lane Association has asked the City to consider an event on the boundary with Camden and Westminster. 

The City is meanwhile exploring the future of traffic on Beech Street, a polluted covered street opposite Barbican Tube station. Options include a complete closure for through traffic.
