Stefano Borella (Labour North End) was the first to say that an announcement was coming about the Thames crossing proposals at the
council meeting on 11th June.
His brief comment was reported here on 19th June. A few days later Hugh Neal’s Maggot Sandwich expanded on it and today it is in the News Shopper. My speculation that there might be a Belvedere bridge has been confirmed by Mayor Boris Johnson. We are going to get yet another consultation. The BBC reports that TfL has so far spent £43 million on crossing consultations. Bexley council has spent a fair bit on its propaganda too.
It has been reported that Boris Johnson now regrets his decision to cancel Ken Livingstone’s bridge and presumably councillor Gareth Bacon will be apologising for the part he has played in delaying the inevitable.
