The enforcement of parking, loading and waiting regulations at sites such as St Pancras and Paddington is a key activity in order to reduce congestion and maintain the safety and security of the area.

Safety and security is of utmost importance and compliance officers are regularly deployed to these and other high profile locations in conjunction with other TfL staff to ensure that these regulations are followed. In a number of locations, or specific areas within these sites, TfL staff work closely with other agencies to ensure that the regulations are followed.
