Question

Vehicles parked on both sides of Waterloo Bridge cause unnecessary congestion and obstruct cycle lanes in both directions, forcing cyclists and motorbike riders out into the path of buses and other vehicles. Will you raise this issue with LB Lambeth officers and recommend that double red lines, as on Blackfriars Bridge, are installed so that cycle lanes on this bridge are no longer obstructed?

TfL has contacted Traffic and Transportation officers at LB Lambeth in order to ascertain whether the borough would be receptive to changing the parking regime on Waterloo Bridge.

LB Lambeth has already installed double yellow lines on one side of Waterloo Bridge, and is now in the process of investigating the traffic order for the other side to see if it may be feasible to install double yellow lines on that side too.

LB Lambeth is only responsible for the southern half of the bridge, and TfL has also made contact with Westminster City Council in relation to the parking regime on the northern half of the bridge.
