Safety signage is part of a new proposal to ban cyclists riding through a riverside stretch of the South Bank in London.

The proposal, composed by the South Bank EmployersÂ’ Group (SBEG), wants to ban cyclists from riding along the stretch, which runs from the Oxo Tower to the city's London Eye.

Draft South Bank and Waterloo Cycle Strategy 2010 – 2012 acknowledges that there is a divide between "local residents and their representatives who wish to see cycling on the riverside prohibited and London-wide cyclists who wish to see it permitted". 

The authors of the report, who represent several major businesses and organisations, have said that if in the event no formal agreement can be secured with the police, landowners should back Lambeth council in installing safety signage to deter cyclists form the area.

According to, the stretch is popular with both cyclists and pedestrians. It is used by bikers as a hassle-free route coupled with lush scenery, but can be packed with pedestrians, especially in the evening and on weekends.
