Decided to take a leisurely walk home from walk last night along the river
(I live in SE16) but came to an abrupt halt because of the closure of the bridge near to the Design Museum, due to development of more luxury flats.
There was no apology, just a small map showing the alternative route along Shad Thames and Jamaica Rd.
Does anyone know how long this route is going to be closed for? Must be highly inconvenient for many people!
I believe it is until early September. I'm not sure if it is to do with Tea Trade Wharf being developed or the bridge being ready for repair. I shall miss looking at the ducks, coots and geese. I think I even saw a Grebe there once.
Highly inconvenient for all those who walk to work along the river too! As you say, no prior warning given and no information as to when it will re-open.
Does anyone have a contact name/no for those in-charge of pedestrian bridge?
There were small notices put up at either end of the bridge at the end of June and I got a leaflet through my door. I shall have a look tonight to see if I still have the leaflet, though I don't think it had any telephone numbers on it.
Spoke to relevant people in Southwark Council today. The walkway and bridge are closed for approx. eight weeks. Permission was sought and granted by Carrillion who is the Developer of the site next to the bridge.
