Answered By:

We do. I am hosting the ‘Reimagine’ event which involves the closure of over 20km of roads in City of London, Southwark and Tower Hamlets. At least six boroughs are planning Car Free Day events too.

Transport for London is managing the impact of the road closures through their Network Management Control Centre. They will monitor displaced traffic and mitigate impact to bus services throughout the day. Bus routes will run through the Reimagine event in both directions, along Bishopsgate and London Bridge.

Visitors to Car Free Day events will be encouraged to travel by public transport, walk or cycle.
