Closures and service changes during the Coronation

During the Coronation of King Charles III, there will be significant road closures and parking restrictions that will have an impact on the streets and parks surrounding central London. Once closures are in place, no vehicles, including cars, buses, coaches, vans, trucks, motorcycles, or bicycles, are permitted inside the restricted event area.

At some locations within the event area, parking for vehicles will be prohibited. If parking bays are shut down for safety reasons, residents who have resident parking permits might need to move their cars. On Tuesday, May 2, a few parking restrictions have gone into effect. The majority of parking restrictions will be in place starting at 8 a.m. on May 5 and lasting through May 6.

If you typically park in the event footprint, which is the area where the roads are closed, and you need to use your car during the vehicle restrictions but your parking is not suspended, it is advised to move your car outside the event footprint before the vehicle restrictions begin.

The majority of the city’s collections will carry on as usual. Due to traffic and road closures, collection crews may arrive at your location later than expected.

From 6 p.m. on May 5 until 3:30 p.m. on May 6, there won’t be a chance to pick up from your premises if your home or place of business is located within the event area. Normal collections, however, ought to resume on Saturday night after the roads are reopened.

There may be pedestrian restrictions and detours that affect people who live near or along the procession route, but access to homes and workplaces will always be available. Until Monday the 15th May, there will be temporary changes to Cycleway 3 around Buckingham Palace and Constitution Hill.
