LONDON'S BRIDGES DURING THE PAGEANT
Organisers have made bridges available to the r verside London Boroughs for allocation to local residents and also to a number of charities associated with the Pageant.
These initiatives have helped organisers to make secure all or part of every bridge as The Queen and the Royal Squadron passes underneath. The precise bridge arrangements are:
Battersea and Chelsea bridges will be open for pedestrians from 0700hrs until early evening. Both bridges will be closed to traffic and are expected to be very crowded.
Albert Bridge will be closed to all traffic and pedestrians starting from 0700hrs until early evening and is designated for invited guests from charities and the riparian boroughs.
Tower Bridge will be closed to all traffic and pedestrians from 0700hrs until early evening and will host guests from the riparian boroughs as well as private events hosted by the City of London.
Millennium Bridge and Jubilee footbridges will be closed and will host guests from the charities and riparian boroughs as well as members of the media
Vauxhall, Waterloo and London bridges will be open to traffic and pedestrians, apart from central section bridge closures as the flotilla passes underneath them at points between 1500 and 1730. They are all expected to be very crowded.
Southwark Bridge will be closed to pedestrians, but not to traffic.
Lambeth, Westminster and Blackfriars bridges will be closed to traffic and pedestrians, but each will have north and south facing viewing screens, with both ends of each bridge open to the public. However, members of the public will need to be counted on to the bridge to comply with capacity and subject to bag searches to maintain security.
While some bridges are open to moving pedestrians and traffic, only members of the public, invited by the charities and the riparian boroughs, who have been security accredited in advance, will be able to use them as spectator areas.
