Last spring Transport for London (TfL) began an annual clean of the gullies along Tower Bridge following Mayor's Question 2018/3439, working with the Metropolitan Police Service.

After the flooding in June, TfL has started to look at any further physical changes that can be made to help limit any further flooding.
