Welcome to Boris's Britain, it's going to get a lot worse.


This bridge is Sadiq Kahns and Hammersmith councils responsibility. Both
Labour and just as ineffectual as the Tories. The calibre of politician we
have at the moment in all parties is just laughable.



As I understand it knowing a quick resolution was beyond the resources of
TFL and Hammersmith
approached the Government for financial assistance and was turned down.


Quite possibly. Perhaps Rishi can visit his magic money tree again.

Given they've now banned pedestrians and cyclists from the bridge one can
only assume its gone beyond needing repair and has moved into dangerous
structure territory. I wonder what effect that'll have on river traffic
beneath if they're worry bits are going to fall off.
