Tower Bridge is popular because it is a big attraction plus it is now the tourist season. Tower Bridge is popular because it is part of The Ring
road and if you use it you don't pay Mayor Ken £8 to go about your business. Tower Bridge is now extremely popular because of the closure of Rotherhithe Tunnel for several weeks for repairs. Anyone planning to use it, whether during congestion charging hours or not, would do well to leave 30 minutes earlier than usual. I did not hear one word about any closure although I did witness an accident involving a motorist and a motorcyclist on Sunday around 2pm. This resulted in Tower Bridge being closed off on the western side whilst the ambulance people cleaned up. Be careful, hey!!
