26 June (Part 1) - Bridge on the River Cray

I was hoping that there would be significant interest in the Cray bridge replacement and that the chairman of the Planning Committee might feel obliged to move the debate to the beginning of the meeting, but my hopes were misplaced. However chairman councillor Peter Reader did rather better than that. He announced that the item had been removed from the Agenda entirely. If I heard him correctly, and the audio system was not at its best, he said that there had been representations from the Environment Agency. So with a sense of relief that I had an unexpected night off, I packed up my camera etc. and trooped out, accompanied by meeting regulars John Watson and Elwn Bryant. Presumably no one else was interested in the bridge.
Later in the evening I was in Bexley village and was surprised to see that the bridge was closed and enquiries revealed that it has closed at 8 p.m. since Tuesday. Thames Water works if the Public Notice dated 10th June is to be believed.
