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.​​

Supplying the City of London Corporation

Road safety standards for suppliers to the City Corporation

If you supply the City of London Corporation new contracts for your fleet include a requirement to have FORS Bronze accreditation, progressing to Silver accreditation for longer term contracts.

Fleet Operators Recognition Scheme (FORS) improves: road safety by checking vehicle compliance for safety equipment, fuel efficiency, vehicle emissions and fleet operations.

The FORS bronze or silver requirement will apply in the following circumstances:

Contracts in scope Contract duration Requirement Deadline
Contracts involving the delivery of goods and services £250k and above AND Works contracts valued at £400k and above 6 months and longer Contractors are required to register with the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) and to have achieved Bronze accreditation or scheme, which in the reasonable opinion of the Corporation, is an acceptable equivalent to FORS. The requirement must be cascaded to any relevant sub-contractors. Within 3 months of contract start
Contracts involving the delivery of goods and services £250k and above AND Works contracts valued at £400k and above 3 years and longer Contractors are required to progress to Silver accreditation under the FORS or a scheme, which in the reasonable opinion of the City Corporation, is an acceptable equivalent to FORS. The requirement must be cascaded to any relevant sub-contractors. Within 18 months of contract start

City Mark

  • City Mark sign
    City Mark
    These signs are being awarded to sites that demonstrate CLOCS and FORS compliance.   

City Mark is a project developed by the Road Danger Reduction team to understand Work Related Road Risk compliance within the City of London.

All construction projects in the City are members of the Considerate Contractors Scheme (CCS) and City Mark is an addition to that scheme. It keeps the scheme up to date with the leading Work Related Road Safety (WRRS) initiatives, part of the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) and the Construction Logistics for Community Safety (CLOCS) standard.

FORS and CLOCS are contract requirements on many construction projects and if properly implemented at every tier ensures safer supply chains with compliant vehicles and drivers trained to share the roads with vulnerable road users.

Development projects will be targeted to encourage the implementation of CLOCS and FORS, to reduce road safety risks. There will be CCS awards recognising best practice.

In the long term City Mark will help build the bigger picture of road safety compliance in the City of London and help understand safety risks.
