London bridges fitted with security barriers in response to terrorism

Security barriers were installed overnight on three London bridges after Saturday night’s terrorist attack that saw a white van mow down pedestrians on London Bridge.

    Yeah, anything but dealing with the cause.

    When you refuse to put a wall around your country, you have to put a wall around everything in your country.
    Why not just wall-off the Muslims instead of us?

    Fill the mosks with concrete not the streets.

    I can see they have taken concrete steps to address the problem. And put these concrete steps on major sidewalks to try to avoid terrorist attacks in prominent places; they seem to believe that a similar number of deaths in out-of-the-way places like Fudgepack upon Humber, Humberside (yes, it’s a real place), will embarrass the jihadists into not doing it again.

      Should make the city look much more attractive with all the new concrete barriers and gates being installed. /s

        All they need is a couple of concrete Jersey barriers† placed to be aligned to the flow of pedestrian traffic, instead of anti-tank sized cubes of concrete so that pedestrians are limited to a single choke point on each side of the single obstacle. The depicted barrier is not only an eyesore, but unnecessarily restricts pedestrian traffic.

        † Concrete ‘Step Barrier’ as known in the UK.

        I’m glad I walked that bridge last year without them. Next year when we’re back it should look like a post modern prison.

    As the saying goes: “a day late and a dollar short.”
    Typical p/c reaction.

    How come everyone bitches about Trump’s wall but now there are the busy Brit beavers building their dams and walls overnight and giving themselves praise for such expedient action. That’s a little much.

    I don’t know why ISIS has chosen bridges as targets. They really are no different than a narrow street. The next attack, which will be just as successful will come on one of the million miles of roadway that is not built over water.

    Wall May in and you’ve got half the problem solved.
