Anyone know why this has been closed?

It's just a hill. Get over it.


  • Because of Thames super sewer works isnt it?

    Works out nicely for me as I cut across and use Temple Avenue anyway, so hopefully we don't have to wait so fricking long for the lights to change there anymore.

    I was hoping that they'd re-engineer it in some way as right angle turns just don't really suit bikes that well. But no, of course not, their solution has just been to shift the turn a little further up the road.

    At least the lights stay green for a bit longer now.

    it's been open with great fanfare for what feels like 5 minutes and it's now closed for 4 years :roll:

    The left turn off the bridge onto Embankment is nuts. Re-think needed.

    But why can't they put up a sign to explain what they're up to? If gas companies can do it...

    I thought brexit meant we didn't have to do the supersewer anymore :wink:

    I now turn up temple ave; I miss my little blackfriars ramp that provided the last bit of interest on the ride in.
