Activities on the highway

The City Corporation is the highway authority for all streets in the City of London except for the Red Routes which are managed by Transport for London.

COVID-19

Highway network

The COVID-19 pandemic has created unprecedented conditions and restrictions. The City of London Corporation, its contractors and partners are monitoring and adapt to the situation, whilst adhering to Government guidelines on social distancing.

The highway network needs to be safe and operational to ensure that essential workers, supplies, and other vital activities are not impeded. The City Corporation must carry out essential works to ensure that the network is maintained to the safest standard and welcomes the public’s understanding and support while these works are carried out.

Carriageway and footway repairs

Planned highway maintenance has stopped and only emergency repairs are being carried out. However, Government advice allows for certain elements of planned carriageway, footway maintenance and renewal to resume in the near future, with social distancing. Some works will start when they have been approved.

There will be regular updates on the resurfacing page on major carriageway resurfacing programmes together with long-term planned renewal works.

Inspections and emergency repairs

Highway safety inspections continue as usual. Inspection regimes and priority deadlines continue with their normal timeframes.

The contractor teams are carrying out emergency repairs, prioritising the most urgent but due to social distancing measures many emergency repairs will be made safe rather than permanent. Whilst not ideal this method ensures that the highway network is maintained and safe.

We encourage members of the public to continue to report potholes and other defects via Highways fault reporting .

Major carriageway resurfacing programme

The major carriageway resurfacing programme was halted because of the lockdown measures imposed by the Government. Works planned for April and May 2020 have been re-scheduled, potentially for February and March 2021, subject to network availability.

Major programme works will re-start from the first weekend in June and will continue as per the programme. Please check for regular updates on the resurfacing page to the programme and for future programmes due to start after April 2021.

Highway scheme Section 106/278 works

Non-essential or non-maintenance class works have stopped. The City Corporation is continuing to monitor Government guidelines as to when and how works can restart.

Cyclical gully cleansing

Cyclical gully cleansing has stopped but emergency attendances and flooding will be dealt with as a matter of priority. The City Corporation will restart this operation when allowed to do so and obeying Government guidelines on social distancing.
