City of London Police and partners plan for demonstration by the Independent Taxi Alliance

Members of the public and motorists are advised that as of Monday 16 January until Friday 20 January they should expect delays to their journeys around the Square Mile due to an expected demonstration at Bank junction.


Beginning at approximately 3pm each afternoon the Independent Taxi Alliance is expected to demonstrate at Bank junction. Those who need to travel through Bank junction are encouraged to plan ahead as significant delays are expected throughout each afternoon and evening until Friday 20 January.


Provisions have been made to allow access for emergency vehicles however all other traffic is advised to avoid the area and find alternative routes where possible. A condition has also been placed on the event in order to prevent serious disruption to the life of the community.


Superintendant Helen Isaac of the City of London Police said: “Whilst we have not had any direct contact from the organisers, we are aware of plans posted on social media for a demonstration in Bank junction in January and plans are in place to facilitate such an event. We are keen to work with the organisers and would encourage them to get in touch with us.”


“A robust policing plan is in place to ensure that timescales are adhered to and disruption is kept to a minimum.”


The protest is in response to changes in traffic access announced last month that are to be introduced in a pilot scheme at Bank Junction from this April.
