Driving

​The City of London is different

The City of London has one of the highest densities of pedestrians and cyclists in the UK at peak times. Drivers in the Square Mile need to take extra care, be alert to all travellers, especially vulnerable road users (pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists) and respect the City's 20mph speed limit.

Go to the Roads, highways and pavements section of the website for useful links, including signing up for our regular email on road closures.

The Parking section has information about on and off street parking, parking restrictions and penalties.

Work related road risk

If you operate a vehicle within the City of London you need to operate under a number of standards and schemes. They aim to reduce the risk of collisions, save lives and protect communities.

Visit Transport for London to find out more about complying with Work Related Road Risk in London and driving near vulnerable users.​​

    These signs are being awarded to sites that demonstrate CLOCS and FORS compliance.   

All construction projects in the City are members of the Considerate Contractors Scheme and City Mark is an addition to that scheme.

Development projects are targeted though City Mark to encourage the implementation of leading Work Related Road Safety initiatives - Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) and the Construction Logistics for Community Safety (CLOCS).

If properly implemented at every tier FORS and CLOCS ensure safer supply chains, compliant vehicles and better trained drivers. In the long-term City Mark will help reduce road safety risks and build the bigger picture of road safety compliance in the City of London.
