The City of London is introducing by experiment a traffic safety scheme at Bank Junction and in the surrounding streets. The primary objective of the scheme is to achieve a reduction in the number of casualties in the Bank area by restricting traffic through the junction to buses and pedal cycles only from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday to Friday. The use of an experiment allows the effect of the scheme to be monitored before it is made permanent and provides flexibility to modify the scheme, or even remove it, should operational experience show it to be desirable.

The dedicated website Bank On Safety contains information on the background to the scheme and how it was developed as well as information on the operation of the scheme and additional plans.
