Service alert- Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting

From 16th-20th April 2018, the UK will host the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting.
Throughout the week, events will take place across venues in London and Windsor, involving up to 53 world leaders, 53 Foreign Ministers, their delegations and around 2,000 delegates from across the Commonwealth.

Vehicle and pedestrian movements in and around the Fenchurch Street and East Cheap area of the City of London will be restricted on Wednesday 18th April, and restrictions will be in place in the vicinity of the Guildhall and Mansion House between Monday 16th and Wednesday 18th April. 

Security measures such as vehicle gates, barriers and low-level pedestrian barriers will be installed overnight on 15th April and will be in place until the morning of 18th April- therefore vehicles will likely be re-directed over this time due to road closures.

We have been advised to avoid the area and use alternative routes during the following times:
