Report of the Town Clerk.
Members considered a report of the Town Clerk regarding public actions and the following points were made.
17/2020/P – Gateline Data at City Stations
· The Director of the Built Environment noted that the City had access to O2 data that suggested there was 75% less footfall within the City. Since refreshed working from home guidance had been issued by the government, working numbers had fallen by 7%. City attendance was higher on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. TfL gateline data correlated O2 data with a 67% reduction in entrance/exit figures on London underground stations within the City. An update on the impact of Tier 2 restrictions on the City daytime population could be provided in due course.
18/2020/P – TfL Traffic Management of London Bridge
· A Member noted that he had been in touch with TfL who had confirmed intelligent signals were deployed to better manage traffic flow across Southwark Bridge on to Lower Thames Street, given the restrictions on London Bridge meant that cars were effectively redirected via Southwark Bridge into the City.
RESOLVED, that the report be received.
