London Bridge and Borough High Street walking and cycling changes

Background and our updated plans for London Bridge and Borough High Street

During the summer of 2020, as part of our response to the coronavirus pandemic, we made temporary changes on London Bridge and along Borough High Street to make it easier for people to walk, cycle, use the bus and to help people to safely social distance. We recently decided to keep these changes as part of an experiment, to further test the scheme for up to 18 months.

We want to know your views and experiences of these changes. We are holding a six-month consultation on the experiment

Enhancements to Borough High Street

We have decided to consult on the changes for London Bridge and Borough High Street together as these locations are close to each other and the changes are complementary.

We will keep the temporary changes on London Bridge in place during the new experimental period and we will be replacing the blue barriers which mark out the widened pavements in Borough High Street with semi-permanent materials. We expect that the construction on Borough High Street will take place in autumn 2022. We have produced some images to show what the street might look like once these changes are finished which can be viewed above and below:
