PEDESTRIAN AND CYCLE ROUTES
There is a footbridge from the West Wintergarden to South Quay and Upper Bank Street Bridge provides a route to Poplar Station in the north.
Access to Canary Riverside provides links to Limehouse via the Thames Path. There are several cycle routes that provide access to Canary Wharf for cyclists. The London Cycle Network also follows a signed route along the river to Canary Riverside and Riverside South.
Canary Wharf provides extensive cycle parking, with more than 1,300 free cycle parking spaces located across the estate. There are an additional 405 secure cycle parking spaces for public use for which a charge is applied and a further 3715 private cycle parking spaces within individual building car parks.
There are 273 Santander Cycle docking stations on the Canary Wharf estate. Those planning to use the scheme can find their closest docking station on the TFL website, where they can also sign up for free cycle training and find out more about the scheme.
Docking stations can be found in the following seven locations on the Canary Wharf estate:
North Quay / West (Fisherman’s Walk, London Underground / West Plaza, South Quay / West (part-suspended due to building work), Heron Quay / DLR Station Concourse / Montgomery Square / Upper Bank Street / Jubilee Park East and South Quay / East.
Transport for London’s Cycle Hire Users’ Code of Conduct suggest some of the following tips for staying safe on your bike:
- Be careful around lorries, which have numerous blind spots, and never pass them on the left just before, or at, traffic lights
- Don’t get too close to parked cars
- Watch out for other vehicles and pedestrians and give clear hand signals to show your intentions
- Make yourself seen at night by wearing reflective or fluorescent clothing
It costs as little as £2 a day to use Santander Cycles, and the scheme accepts all major credit and debit cards. It does not accept cash or Oyster.

PLANNED ACCESS CLOSURES
Notifications of planned closures on the Estate will appear here. Note also that these can occur at short notice however, every effort will be made to update this information when known.
New District (formerly Wood Wharf)
Construction is well underway on site now and as such the temporary pedestrian route through Canary Wharf’s New District is now closed.
We are sorry that the temporary path cannot be kept open during the next phase of construction, we had hoped to maintain a walking route throughout the work, but we now know that it is not possible to do this safely due to the heavy construction across the whole site.
Local residents are our customers and neighbours, we do not want to inconvenience them unless it is completely unavoidable and we continue to look for possible solutions which will help people while the pathway is closed. We are currently running a bus service at peak times between Preston’s Road, Canary Wharf and South Quay, there is no charge to access this, a full timetable can be found here.
When the next phase of construction is finished there will be a permanent new road linking Preston’s Road to Cartier Circle, which will be an excellent connection for local residents.
See below for details of the alternate pedestrian routes between Preston’s Road and Canary Wharf.
As the construction work along Bank Street progresses it is necessary to divert the current pedestrian path. Click here to download the revised pedestrian route
