Significant road closures on 10 April

Make sure you're aware of planned road closures in Bankside
Tom Harris
Operations Manager

On Monday 10 April there are planned road closures in Bankside that will significantly affect access to the area.

Road closures and diversions will impact on all activities for much of the day. The exact details of the road closures are still being finalised, but they are likely to affect the areas from London Bridge on the north side to Borough High Street junction with Marshalsea Road/Great Dover Street to the south and Southwark Bridge on the north side to Marshalsea Road to the south.

Tower Bridge will remain open but roads south of the river, to the west are likely to be closed with diversions in place. Blackfriars Bridge will remain open but again, roads south of the river, to the east are likely to be closed with diversions in place for much of the day.

Public transport routes in and out of London Bridge overground and underground stations should not be affected. Bus routes in an out of London Bridge station are likely to be affected and you should make alternative arrangements if you are planning to use those services between 11am and 4pm.

The road closures will be put in place to accommodate the funeral of Police Constable Keith Palmer at Southwark Cathedral. PC Palmer tragically lost his life during the terrorist attack at The Palace of Westminster on Wednesday 22 March 2017.

Police are advising if you are intending to be on foot in the immediate area surrounding Southwark Cathedral, please carry a form of official identification with you, such as your driving licence, building pass or permit, or a letter from your employer, or if a resident, proof of address, such as a driving licence, or a utility bill. You may need to make alternative arrangements for deliveries on this date if your business is located on any of the affected roads.

For more information and details of the roads to be affected please see the letter from Metropolitan Police on the left of this story.
