It looks like the bridge will just be closed to vehicles, not pedestrians, this time round. That sounds great! bbc.in/1TZ3oIe
Yes, for you I guess, but how about if you run a one man transport business, regularly delivering heavy materials from your premises at Bricklayers Arms, to Shoreditch or Whitechapel?
I don't by the way, and I'm not for one minute going against the proposed repairs to the bridge, just pointing out that not everyone will be ecstatic about it.
e.g. I live in Rotherhithe, and due to the 24 hour bus lane, Jamaica Road
toward the tunnel is regularly backed up as far as Dockhead
When the bridge closes, I envisage it being backed up as far as Borough High Street
