The Bank on Safety experimental scheme will be operational from Monday 22 May 2017. This means that only pedal cyclists and buses will be able to cross Bank Junction, Monday to Friday, between the hours of 7am to 7pm. Other vehicles will be rerouted via advanced warning signs on the approaches to the area and the junction.
There is a selection of maps on the Bank on Safety web pages regarding taxi rank locations, loading areas and access routes to each of the approach arms, which are available to download.
Christopher Hayward, Chairman of the City of London Corporation’s Planning and Transportation Committee, said: “Principally our motivation for implementing this scheme is to improve safety and reduce casualties. But Bank should also be a junction enjoyed and celebrated by users, a sentiment echoed by the local community, businesses and residents.“
