The Guardian has done two stories (oddly enough, that Valentine's thing doesn't seem to have been covered in the Standard, or at least I can't find it on their web-site--perhaps it interferes a bit too much with the politics):
A more general piece on London bridges:
find two long, out of service roro ferries.
A bit of work on either bank to build suitable jetties/linkspans.
Wedge the roros between the jetties/linkspans.
Vehicles drive through the two roros.
Everyone's happy, a 'bridge' and a 'ferry'.
I’m not so sure - it’s got a financial backer, who has a background in venture capital (I think) and seems very keen. I think the risk is more that, in the absence of someone pushing the better route, this is let through because of the public clamour for something to happen
Well, who knows. Perhaps it's the only option to run it from there, but it will need planning permission, and there may well be material reasons against granting that. I'm afraid I don't know what planning issues may arise for a river crossing. I still think the plan with the temporary decks seems to be the best option by some distance.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
