The below information was distributed by the CSSC for sharing;
The President of the United States of America, Donald Trump, is visiting the UK for an official state visit from 3rd to the 5th June 2019. The visit will largely focus in London with official and state engagements on the 3rd and 4th June, and in Portsmouth on the 5th.
A significant security plan is being developed together with plans to police protest and endeavour to maintain business as usual for businesses, organisations, residents, visitors alike and keep disruption to a minimum.
Maps of the affected roads on Monday and Tuesday are included at the end of this message.
More specific details are being provided separately to organisations and residents within the shaded areas.
Currently the main day of protest is expected to be Tuesday 4th June starting in Trafalgar Square at about 11am. This area, and Parliament Square and Whitehall are expected to remain busy through the day.
We anticipate some protest activity in Parliament Square on Monday morning and later in the evening.
If protests move elsewhere, contingency traffic plans are in place to reduce congestion and manage traffic flows. These will be communicated via existing email groups, as well as social media channels via Transport for London (@TfLTravelAlerts) and Met Police (@MetPoliceEvents)
