Public consultation on proposals to change how Bank Junction operates is open until Monday, 10 May 2021. How to take part in the consultation can be found at www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/allchangeatbank.
The All Change at Bank project is looking towards the future of the area around Bank Station. The underground station upgrade is due to open at the end of 2022.
The proposal is to further restrict motor vehicle movements on three of the arms (Threadneedle, Princes and Queen Victoria Street) which would be effective 24/7. This will deliver a simplified layout of the junction and provide the opportunity to deliver substantial improvements for people who walk and cycle, also to provide greening and seating; improving the spaces for people to pass though and to stop and rest.
A number of temporary changes to the City’s streets have been delivered by the City of London Corporation and Transport for London in response to Covid-19. The long-term status of these projects has not yet been determined, but some may be retained in their current or modified form. Any proposals for permanent changes will take account of the proposals for All Change at Bank and will be subject to the usual decision making and consultation processes.
Letters have been sent to all City residents to notify them of the All Change at Bank consultation. Businesses, workers, visitors, and students are being engaged through various established outlets. In addition, we will be hosting several virtual town hall meetings for stakeholders to learn more about the project, as well as a chance to ask questions. A place on these sessions can be booked:
- Wednesday 14 April 12:30pm – 1:30pm
- Thursday 22 April 6:30pm – 7:30pm
- Wednesday 28 April 12:30pm – 1:30pm
