The new 'No Cycling' signs on the South Bank will be removed, after LCC activists lobbied for considerate cycling to be allowed.
A spokesperson for Lambeth council said, "The No Cycling signs that have been erected on the South Bank were advisory and part of an ongoing experiment to tackle aggressive cycling along this stretch of the South Bank.
"However, we recognise that a large number of considerate cyclists have been affected by this decision.
"As a result of feedback from residents and users of the river walk, we have decided to replace the 'No Cycling' signs with the following: 'Pedestrian Priority. Considerate Cycling Welcomed'
The erection of the new signs will take place within the next few weeks, and PCSOs will be instructed to stop anyone they feel is riding too fast.
