APRIL update

The North South Cycle Superhighway is now open up to Upper Ground and the whole route should be open by the end of April. **There will be short overnight closures of Blackfriars Bridge for resurfacing from 21.00 on 31 March  to 0500 on 1 April and 18.00 on 3 April to 05.00 on 4 April**


Project overview

Transport for London (TfL) is building the North-South Cycle Superhighway as part of the Road Modernisation Plan. This substantially segregated cycle route is designed to make London’s roads safer for cycling, from Elephant and Castle to the junction of Stonecutter Street and Farringdon Street. It has been designed to improve safety and comfort for cycling by reducing conflict between motorised traffic and cyclists. 


Some bus stops will be suspended during the works, affecting routes 45, 63, 100, N63 and N89. However, two adjacent bus stops that serve the same route will not be suspended at the same time

Road users

At different times during the works, journeys may be affected and road users are advised to check before they travel. 


Pedestrian footways along Blackfriars Road will remain open, wherever possible. Some temporary closures may be needed, where there is not enough room for both the works and pedestrians. Closures will be signposted and pedestrians directed to the nearest crossing to complete their journey. All pedestrian crossings on Blackfriars Road will remain open during the works. Pedestrian access to properties along Blackfriars Road will be maintained at all times 

TfL apologises in advance for any inconvenience caused by these works.

Working hours

The majority of the works will take place on weekdays between 08:00 and 18:00. However, to minimise disruption for other road users , there will be some night and weekend works; TfL apologises in advance for any inconvenience this causes.
