Officials have erected security barriers on London's three main bridges
The large concrete barriers were installed overnight on Waterloo, Lambeth and Westminster bridges after seven people died when a trio of ISIS thugs struck in central London on Saturday night.
Police have also been guarding the capital’s main bridges in order to deter any potential “copycat” terror attacks after pedestrians were mown down on London Bridge before going on a knife rampage in Borough Market.
As Londoners returned to work on Monday morning after the eight-minute reign of terror, they were pictured crossing the sturdy new structures.

Where is the protection for cyclists?
But cyclists took to Twitter to complain about safety precautions for four-wheelers as the security barriers – between the road and pavement – appear to be located in the same place as the bridge cycle lanes.
One said: “Where is the protection for cyclists?"
Another said: "Barriers on Waterloo Bridge. Hope space is made safe for cyclists @citycyclists @se1"
And: “Move it out a bit and protect both, otherwise a car can go down the edge and kill lots of cyclists. cycles are as vulnerable as peds, why not a priority ?"
However other Twitter users were quick to lambast the cyclist concerns describing them as “selfish”.

Cyclists have asked what about their safety
One hit back: “Seriously???!! Very ill timed comment indeed!”
Others told them they should get off their cycle and walk the stretch of the bridge.
“You have a choice.. walk, bus, tube, cycle … those in coffins or critical conditions don't #selfishcyclists,” another said.
One tweeted: “The barriers are there to protect the public from those who want to kill. If your legs work – get off & push it. Sorted.”
Another added: "You can always get off and walk across the bridge with your bike. It's not that big a deal."
A Twitter user posted: "Be safe walk your bike along the pavement stop adding to the chaos, your choice!"
In reaction, the leader of Westminster City Council said the barriers need to be "permanent".

"The kind of security barrier now in place on Westminster Bridge needs to be part of a permanent solution.”
