The City of London introduced by experiment loading restrictions that operate ‘between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Mondays to Fridays inclusive’ on the north side of Cannon Street. The experimental restrictions link the existing loading restrictions between St. Swithin’s Lane and Nicholas Lane.

Cannon Street forms part of the Strategic Road Network within the City of London and is one of the busiest streets in the City. Along this length of the street there is a bus stop and a pedestrian island in the vicinity of Laurence Pountney Hill. When delivery vehicles are stopped on the north side and a bus is at the bus stop, no traffic can flow in either direction. The experimental restriction on loading during the working day along the north side improved the traffic flow during the six months observation period. Therefore, the City Corporation will make them permanent.
