No modelling has been completed at this stage, so TfL cannot yet confirm the traffic impact of the closure. However the City of London Corporation (CoL), which is responsible for Tower Bridge, is in the process of procuring external contractors to design and build the improvements, with appointments expected in early August 2015. Once the detailed proposals are ready, TfL will model the closure incorporating the impacts of other works in the surrounding area. The results will then be published and provided to stakeholders.
