The Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has ordered a detailed study into the potential pedestrianisation of Parliament Square following the suspected terror attack outside the Houses of Parliament in August. New plans could see traffic banned from certain sections of Parliament Square if any future proposals were to be approved. Sadiq Khan, along with Parliament, Westminster City Council and the Minister for Security have commissioned a detailed feasibility study into making the area safer. The Evening Standard have confirmed in a report that the Metropolitan Police and government security advisers will also assist with the inquiry. A joint statement by Mayor Khan, Westminster City Council leader Nickie Aiken and Deputy Speaker of Commons Sir Lindsay Hoyle highlighted the need to consider what changes may need to be made to improve safety in the area. Measures were implemented last year following the Westminster Bridge terror attack, but they say last months suspected terror attack has forced them to consider yet more safety measures around parliament.
