Cannon Street and Bank Junction

Cannon Street is closed in both directions. Cadent is progressing well and has completed the replacement of the first section of one main. The temporary partial reopening of Bank Junction eastbound from Queen Victoria Street remains in place with all other restrictions at Bank  remaining in place. For more information visit Cadent's website or contact the Community Relations Team on 0800 389 8261.

Newgate Street

During the five-day emergency closure last week the City of London's Highways Team coordinated collaborative works saving 50 days of disruption.
