A number of road closures will be implemented in central London as part of the security operation for the NATO Leaders’ Meeting.

As part of the operation, officers from the Met, working with partners, will be implementing significant road closures around Green Park and St James’s Park.

The closures will begin to be implemented from around 23:00hrs on Monday, 2 December and will remain in place until Wednesday, 4 December.

On Tuesday, 3 December, closures will be put in place on Constitution Hill, The Mall, Horse Guards Road and Birdcage Walk. A partial closure of Whitehall and Parliament Square will also be implemented. Map 1 is attached to highlight the closures.

Whilst these roads are closed to vehicles, a number of footways will be open, but may be subject to temporary closures. These are marked in yellow on Map 1.

Officers will be available to direct pedestrians. 

Between 16:30hrs and 22:30hrs (also on 3 December), a total exclusion zone will be implemented in the pink shaded area with red barriers. This means no vehicles will be allowed in this area. This has been highlighted on map 2.

We acknowledge that these closures will cause disruption for travel and thank the public in advance for their patience.
