Planned works on London Bridge

From March to October 2020, the City of London will carrying out essential maintenance work on London Bridge.

During these works, from 16 March to 7 August, only one footpath will be open at a time. It is likely it will take longer to walk across the bridge, which will be much more crowded.

After 7 August both footpaths will reopen, although works on the bridge will continue until the end of October.
