About this project

Victoria Bridge is located on Ridout Street South over the Thames River, south of Horton Street East, next to Thames Park. The existing bridge will be replaced with a new “through arch” structure, which will include a widened deck surface to better accommodate bicycle traffic, pedestrians, and improved connectivity with the Thames Valley Parkway.



The project includes road work on Ridout Street extending from the Horton Street intersection to Ingleside Place. The bridge replacement work will require full closure of Ridout Street to motor vehicles, from Horton Street to Ingleside Place, with general traffic detoured to Wharncliffe Road and Wellington Road.


A temporary active transportation bridge will be installed ahead of main bridge construction to maintain access through the area for cyclists and pedestrians during the Ridout Street closure.




Public Update Meeting:

The City of London hosted a virtual public update meeting (PUM) on Thursday, January 27, 2022, to give an update on the project and to present the latest designs, and plans for construction. Construction is expected to start in spring 2022.


Thanks to everyone who joined the Public Information Session. This meeting was a chance to:

  • view project design
  • learn about the plans for construction and what to expect
  • learn about potential impacts and mitigation
  • participate in a question and answer period with the project team

Design Update

In response to feedback the City received, the general traffic lanes on Victoria Bridge have been narrowed from 3.5 m to 3.3 m, and bollards will be added to the northbound bike lane to provide physical separation between vehicles and people on bikes.

As the City explores cycling infrastructure improvements to the north and south of Victoria Bridge on Ridout Street, it will be with an eye to integrating the northbound bridge bike lane to be consistent with those designs. The wider bridge deck in the new design allows for flexibility to adapt and adjust bridge operations to align with future conditions on Ridout Street.
