High Street 2012

Introduction: 

High Street 2012 is an ambitious programme to enhance and celebrate the ribbon of London life that connects the City at Aldgate to the Olympic Park at Stratford.  The project combines a series of area-based initiatives that respond to specific places along the route with street actions that cover the whole stretch to create a coherent thread that unites the intersecting high streets.

The various projects that form part of High Street 2012 will create a thriving high street of which London can be proud and which the world will admire, where there is a balance between pedestrians and other road users, where people and places are connected, where locals and visitors want to be, and where there is a sense of history, diversity, community, fun and well being.

“It’s fitting that there will be a wonderful, vibrant avenue leading to London’s 2012 legacy in the east of the city.”

Boris Johnson, Mayor of London
