The closure has now been in place for over two months and the City of London Corporation believe that the changes have largely been a success and no major problems have been reported on site. The additional carriageway space now given over to pedestrians is being utilised, particularly at peak times. Further work to be undertaken:
- Review results of comprehensive Road Safety Audit and consider what changes to signage and street markings should be undertaken;
- Relocation of cycle parking at southern end of Lime Street;
- Creation of lay-by for service vehicles once the scaffolding has been removed at southern end of Lime Street;
- Set up equipment for and undertake monitoring to help decide whether the timed closure should be retained, amended or abandoned in the long-term.
More detailed information is available at www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/limestreet. If you do have any comments or feedback on the timed closure please email email@example.com.
With new property developments happening in the ward such as “Gotham City” (pictured above) there will inevitably be a displacement of businesses currently occupying the sites. The City of London Corporation keeps a complete database of all property available in the square mile and offer a free service to all businesses, large or small, looking for space.
Whatever your requirements in terms of floor space, whether you want to stay in EC3 or look elsewhere in the square mile we can provide you with a list of properties suitable for your needs.
Please see the City Property Advisory Team’s website and drop them an email outlining what you are looking they will do their very best to help. I am happy to follow up or make a direct introduction as always please just let me know.
Construction has now started on the Aldgate Gyratory project to create a new public square and improve pedestrian, vehicle and cycle flow around the area. Project details and updates and sign up to the weekly e-bulletin are available from the link:
