The City of London is introducing an experimental restriction on motor vehicles entering Cousin Lane. Only those vehicles that require access to premises in Cousin Lane will be permitted. 

The streetscape in Cousin Lane has been improved to make the street more attractive as it leads down to the Riverside Walk and to a pub overlooking the river. The carriageway has been raised to provide a step-free area and trees will be planted to make the area more welcoming.

The introduction of a restriction on motor vehicles entering the street operating at all times will limit traffic to just those vehicles that need to be in the street. This would mainly be to use one of the four vehicular accesses to buildings that lie along the street, or to make deliveries / collections at premises along the street. The restriction will prevent vehicles from using Cousin Lane as a waiting point before making deliveries elsewhere.
