Two Bermondsey roads will close for three hours on Thursday June 23 to help “facilitate” the referendum on the United Kingdom’s membership of the European Union.
Both Barnham Street and Shand Street near Southwark Council on Tooley Street will shut to traffic from 9pm to 11:59pm to ensure the delivery of ballot boxes goes undisturbed.
The council’s offices on Tooley Street will be responsible for tallying up Southwark’s votes on the night as the world waits to hear what the UK’s future position in the EU will be.
Polling stations will be open from 7am to 10pm on June 23 for people to either vote to “Remain” or “Leave” the European Union.
