Answered By: 
The Mayor

I do welcome the opportunity to improve the environment at Aldgate. I understand that a single developer now owns much of the developable land in the vicinity of the Gyratory. The developer is exploring options with TfL and Tower Hamlets Council to regenerate the area. These include removing the Gyratory and creating a pedestrian piazza in Braham Street. However, these ideas are at a very early stage.Aldgate Gyratory is of course an important junction on the Inner Ring Road, catering for large and complex traffic movements, including buses, and the challenges in achieving a workable arrangement should not be underestimated. .
