DPD Customer Bulletin – The King’s Coronation – Impact on deliveries in the London area from Thursday 4 May

The King’s Coronation will take place on the morning of Saturday 6 May at Westminster Abbey. However, we have been informed that the road closures in Westminster will start from Thursday 4 May and remain in place until Sunday 7 May.

We are doing everything we can to minimise the impact of this event on your deliveries, including transferring all our Westminster depot deliveries, since the road outside our depot will be closed, to our London City depot. However, these road closures will mean we are unable to gain access to certain roads and be unable to make some deliveries in the SW1 area.

On Sunday 7 May, the celebrations move to Windsor, which will impact the area in the SL4 postcode area and we expect the roads into Windsor to be extremely congested.

In addition, there are numerous street parties planned across the weekend which will see many residential roads closed which will restrict the movement of our delivery vehicles.

Any parcels that cannot be delivered will be reattempted on Tuesday 9 May, following the Bank Holiday.
