Changes at Bank junction from 22 May 2017:

The Bank on Safety experimental scheme will be operational from Monday 22 May.

Whilst the scheme is in operation only pedal cycles 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.

You may wish to leave extra time for your journey.

The primary objective of this scheme is to achieve a 50-60% reduction in casualties in the area, alongside improvements in air quality at the junction and reduced journey times for bus passengers.
