The Tower Bridge Bascules

During the night-time bridge closures, the bascules were raised to facilitate the painting of areas inaccessible when the Bridge is in its down position.

With this work now completed, scaffolding will be erected around the underside of the bascules from 2 November, this means that there will be no Bridge Lifts for vessels taking place until the end of March when the work is due to be completed.
