Default Borough Market viaduct

Noticed today there's a significant amount of steelwork in place now, with
the deck being installed.

Wonder what they'll use it for if Thameslink takes the big hit many are
predicting...

The "big hit" is more likely to be to delay completion by a year to
spread the expenditure over a greater number of financial years.

Crossrail is also likely to be delayed by a year. Strenuous "value
engineering" efforts are already under way to reduce the overall cost.

The East London River Crossing, or whatever it is called now, will
also finally be given the go-ahead. That's a road, not a railway
project, but it may be of interest because it parallels more than one
rail route.

Turn up early and buy in bulk and it's cheap enough Mr A - you can
then have a pint at the Market Porter before heading back to your
market stall to flog said veg to the masses whilst further finessing
your vocal dexterity.

(Though if you've got the tenacity to do a bit of discreet market
bartering with the Johnny-come-lately Turkey burger folk and their ilk
then they often seem game to cut the price a little.)

That's a change in the rules

It used to be that 100% of the cost was allocated to the year that the work
started and was one of the reasons why large transport works never got
authorised.
