Tower Bridge was able to pass again after being stuck due to technical issues.
Images from a live camera of an east-facing shard skyscraper showed that both sides of the intersection would recombine around midnight on Monday.
A spokesman for the City of London Corporation, which owns and operates the bridge, previously said:
“We are working to resolve the issue as soon as possible.”
By 6:30 am local time on Tuesday, there were no updates from the company.
The obstacle meant that the bridge could not be closed properly and was forced to remain open from around 3 pm local time.
According to the latest information from Transport for London, it caused several hours of traffic problems, which could hardly be resolved by around 9 pm.
Images of the scene on Monday afternoon show increased traffic on both sides of the bridge owned, funded and managed by the City of London Corporation.
