Until the 30th December, Tower Bridge will be closed to traffic – both cars and buses will be diverted. And while it’s fine for you to roam freely on foot down the car-free road for the majority of this time, there will be a couple of weekends when the bridge is closed entirely while it’s undergoing essential maintenance. Between the hours of 8am and 10pm on 26th-27th November, 3rd-4th December and 10th-11th December, pedestrians will not have access to Tower Bridge either. The closure of Tower Bridge has already causing a build up of traffic in the surrounding areas. But what was noticed by some on the first day of the closure was that, as opposed to being subject to essential maintenance, it was apparently being used to shoot the next Transformers movie…

Perhaps the friendly Transformers are just doing their bit for mankind (and TfL)? For more details about the closure, visit the TfL website.
