New Bollards at Victoria Embankment - May 2023

Victoria Embankment


Permanent gates and bollards have been installed along Victoria Embankment to make the park a safer and more attractive environment to enjoy. Gates and bollards were initially deployed to promote active travel during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Following an extesnsive consultation these measures were made permenant. The barriers have removed 4,000 vehicle journeys through the park. It has resulted in a quieter area for individuals of all ages to enjoy walking, wheeling and cycling.
