Why we made these changes

In 2020 we delivered several temporary changes to London Bridge as part of our emergency response to the coronavirus pandemic. As London continues to recover from the pandemic it will be more important than ever to support and encourage everyone who can to be more active. Active travel can make people healthier and happier, and it plays a part in managing and reducing congestion as well as improving our environment.

London Bridge itself was already closed to traffic (except pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists, buses and taxis) for approximately six months before our temporary changes due to bridge refurbishment works. The road layout of London Bridge is scheduled to be amended when the bridge refurbishment works are complete to provide a lightly segregated cycleway, bus lane and general traffic lane in each direction.

London Bridge station is Britain’s fourth busiest National Rail station and it is London’s fifth busiest Tube station. Pedestrian numbers in the London Bridge ‘corridor’ were already very high before the lockdown, and there was significant pedestrian congestion on pavements in the area. Bus journey times were also an issue, with many buses being delayed due to heavy traffic in the area. For these reasons we plan to accelerate the introduction of the changes we had already planned to make to the road layout of London Bridge.

What has happened so far

We have been monitoring the scheme since it was introduced. This includes the scheme’s effects on traffic flow, road safety and cycling and walking rates. We have also asked people for their views on the scheme. We are using this information to help inform what we do next.

Listening to you

Although we are not currently undertaking a formal consultation on this scheme, we would like to know about your experiences of it. If you have any comments about the effects of our scheme, or suggestions for changes or improvements we might make, please let us know at by completing the Survey, emailing us at haveyoursay@tfl.gov.uk or using the Questions tool below.

In August 2021 we wrote to people to explain the next steps with many of the schemes we introduced as part of our response to the pandemic. We are now reviewing the schemes to decide what we’d like to retain.

  • We are keen to hear from people’s experiences of the scheme we’ve introduced, and whether you think we should retain, change or remove it. Please complete this survey to share your views with us.  

    Your response will support our decision on what we do next, alongside the monitoring we are doing.

    Please note responses to the survey may be made publicly available after the engagement exercise has closed, this would typically be in the form of a report on the results of the engagement exercise, but any personal information will be kept confidential.
