Westminster bridge will have fully segregated cycle lanes and permanent protective barriers by the end of January 2022, Transport for London (TfL) has confirmed.
Temporary barriers were installed on the bridge following the terror attack of 2017 which saw a car mount the pavement to hit pedestrians. More than 50 people were injured, four fatally.
Westminster Bridge was among eight central London crossings to have temporary protective measures installed following the attack, at a cost of £35 million.
TfL confirmed on Wednesday work will begin next week replacing the temporary barriers on Westminster Bridge with “heritage-style bollards” that will protect pedestrians and cyclists.
