Transport users and motorists are being warned this weekend’s celebrations to mark The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee are expected to cause disruption.
Transport for London is urging anyone travelling into central London to plan their journey online before travelling.
Motorists are being advised to avoid the area, especially on Sunday (3rd June) when all central London bridges will be closed for all or part of the day.
TfL warns anyone attending Monday’s Diamond Jubilee concert should expect queues at London Underground stations and is asking attendees to plan their home journey in advance.
Peter Hendy CBE, London’s Transport Commissioner, said: “The events planned to mark The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee are set to be both a fantastic and fitting spectacle, and our staff and those of our contractors will be working hard to ensure that Londoners and visitors can get around the city.
“Central London will be very busy throughout the weekend and everyone intending to be in central London should use public transport, plan their journeys ahead and check before they travel.
“Road closures and bus diversions will mean that some people have to travel in different ways – particularly on the Sunday. Due to a number of road and bridge closures, motorists are advised particularly to avoid central London for all but essential journeys on that day. Central London will also be very busy during Monday evening and those attending late evening events should allow additional time for their journey home.
“By planning ahead and checking before travelling everyone will be able to get where they need to be, and have a great time celebrating the Diamond Jubilee.”
