Emma Gaydon, TfL, reports on City of London Bank Junction changes starting May 22nd

The City of London Corporation's experimental safety scheme, Bank on Safety, is going live on 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 City of London website – www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/bankonsafety - regarding taxi rank locations, loading areas, length restrictions and access routes to each of the approach arms, which are available to download.

As part of the experiment they are undertaking an extensive amount of monitoring. One area of monitoring is a perception survey for before and after to assess how the experiment changes views.  They are encouraging anyone that passes through Bank, by any mode, to take a couple of minutes and let them know what they think about Bank now.  The exercise will be repeated after the experiment has settled in. The survey opened on Monday 24 April and will close on Sunday 21 May and can be found on the webpage www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/bankonsafety
