London is currently on lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic and the English capital took the opportunity to repaint the iconic Abbey Road crosswalk and give it a fresher look.

Of course, a lot of you are aware that the now legendary zebra-striped crossing became a popular landmark after it got featured in the album artwork for The Beatles' 1969 album Abbey Road.

The project was overseen by a British Highways Maintenance crew and now, it looks as majestic as it once was. See images of Abbey Road's restoration here:

Shot on August 8, 1969 by Scottish photographer Iain Macmillan, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr reportedly spent roughly 10 minutes walking back and forth through the pedestrian lane just to get the perfect shot for the album. 51 years later, it's become an important piece in music history.
