In Dec 03 the 'Ring of Steel' was extended to that part of the City of London west of Farringdon Street. This is St Bride Street, taken from the Farringdon Street end, looking north-west. Note that there are two sets of concrete barriers. The red plate on the signpost reads 'no left turn into St Bride Street from 20 Dec 2003, enquiries phone 020.........' The white plate reads 'except buses and cycles' It would be a strange bus that could negotiate that barrier - it is in fact a relic from an earlier scheme
