Latest notice from  PLA. On a quick skim, no change to the overall policy and rules, just a neater way of communicating with boats.

 

This smart signal thing is the same as that controlling Arch 4 at Vauxhall, which works pretty well in my experience. I do have slight red/green colour blindness ...

Probably quicker than sorting out who should pay for the repairs. Time for a cosy sponsorship deal?

Dunno! Look what happened in the case of the last two new bridges proposed across the Thames in London - the Garden Bridge and the Canary Wharf to Rotherhithe Bridge. Both abandoned after substantial money had been spent on developing the project.

I can just imagine it emblazoned with banners proclaiming it to be the "Tesco Hammersmith Bridge". Perhaps they could build a supermarket on the bridge itself; there were precedents on the capital's bridges a few centuries ago.

Why not, why not, why not - just pull the blurry thing down and sell it to the Americans (or ano) and put a proper bridge in its place.

It's a miracle of Victorian engineering but totaly useless for today's traffic demands.

I remember wobling over it in my motor bike before most of you were born and thinking the equivalent of w.t.f (language was more restained then).

Conversely just put a blurry great prop midstream to hold up the roadway.

Send the Blues race up to Henley-Ya. The river dosent get that much other traffic anyway...

hic..
