The development of Aldgate gyratory is a complex and ambitious project by the City of London. The finished project will provide new pedestrian crossing points, allow easier navigation of bus services and introduce two new public spaces on the eastern edge of the City of London.

The centrepiece of the scheme is a large public space uniting two heritage listed buildings: Sir John Cass's Foundation Primary School and the St Botolph without Aldgate Church.

Freeform were engaged to work with the project planners and engineers, the contractor and the City of London team to create a high detail 4D model of the works.

The model incorporated 14 distinct phases of traffic management during the critical stages of the works. These phases were integrated into the project schedule of highways, paving, landscaping and permanent street signage, lighting and furniture. The completed 4D model was then used by the team to test and refine the sequence of work; and ensure traffic management plans were optimised and public access be maintained during the work.
