London: tower bridge will be closed for cars


One of the most famous sights of London, tower bridge, will be temporarily closed to traffic. The ban will take effect from October 2016 and will last about three months.

The decision of the municipal authorities was a necessary measure in connection with necessity of carrying out repair and restoration work. The age of the bridge exceeds 122 years, and the load on the architectural object is very high — every day through this crossing is more than 20 thousand cars because the existing number of bridges over the Thames is not enough for the rational allocation of road traffic.

In addition, it will last to repair to tower bridge, his visit is also partly restrict and for tourists in particular, it is already known that the landmark will be closed to pedestrians during some weekends and holidays.

British architects have repeatedly raised the issue and cited the example of Paris in which the banks of the Seine are connected to twice as many bridges, but the decision to start the construction of new crossings of the Metropolitan authorities was taken.
