City of London Corporation plans to pedestrianise half of the Square Mile

The crush of office workers navigating the City’s narrow medieval streets amid heavy traffic could come to an end if plans to pedestrianise fully or partially half of the Square Mile’s roads are approved.

The City of London Corporation has published a draft of its first dedicated transport strategy, which proposes making at least 50% of its street space “pedestrian priority” by 2044.

This would mean those roads will be either fully pedestrianised or “access only” for vehicles, with all vehicles, including cycles, expected to give way to people walking.
