Photo number:
Photo #16545

After a cyclist was killed in 2004 on Blackfriars Bridge, the layout was rejigged (read the history of it all here:
and cyclists gained a fantastically wide lane all to themselves.
On 10.4.09 I was cycling across the bridge and discovered the width of the bike lane had been halved (see #16553) and it was no longer a mandatory lane but advisory. There were no warning signs alerting cyclists to the changes. If you think from the photo that this is okay see the effect of introducing an HGV (see #16546) and then put a cyclist alongside one (see #16547).
