Given the proposed reduction in the speed limit across the City of London it seems perverse to exclude a mode of transport with an exemplary safety record. Will the Mayor also be willing to enter into a dialogue in a bid to open up Bank Junction to the taxi industry given the taxi industry's impeccable safety record at that junction?

The current ambitious improvements at Bank Junction have delivered both a significant reduction in collisions for vulnerable road users and improved bus journey times, and I supported the scheme on this basis. The City of London Corporation is the highway authority for Bank Junction, and any future changes are a matter for the Corporation to consider. However, as the junction forms part of the Strategic Road Network, Transport for London will review and assess any changes proposed to the highway network here on my behalf.
