TfL has impressed upon the City of London Corporation (CoL), which is responsible for Tower Bridge, of the need to provide pedestrian signage as well as access for those who are mobility impaired. TfL has also suggested the option of using a shuttle bus service or a ferry crossing service between St Katharine Docks and Butlers Wharf for pedestrians wishing to cross the river during the bridge closure. CoL is considering these options.
