Westminster Bridge cycle lanes become permanent

Transport for London’s plans to install permanent barriers to block off cycle lanes on Westminster Bridge have been approved by the two affected Boroughs either side of the Thames.

Community website London-SE1 reports that both the City of Westminster and Lambeth councils have approved the application for listed building consent for the proposed new layout.

Temporary barriers were installed on bridges in central London in the aftermath of the June 2017 terrorist attack at London Bridge, and TfL will now replace temporary metal barriers with 450 ‘heritage-style’ bollards which will separate motor traffic on the bridge from new cycle lanes between the carriageway and the pavement.
