The completion of the segregated cycle track across Blackfriars Bridge is the culmination of more than a decade of campaigning by bike activists since the death of Vicki McCreery in 2004.

In 2011 cycling campaigners staged a series of protests at the bridge linked to City of London plans to remodel the junction at the northern end.

Cycle superhighway 6 from St George's Circus to Farringdon Street has taken more than a year to build.

Transport for London recently held a public consultation on plans for the next phase of the route between Farringdon Street and King's Cross.
