It's recently been hit by a barge and, like the Transport for London press release says...
Pedestrians and cyclists
It is currently open to pedestrian traffic and cyclists only.
And that's been working fine.
I have no idea - and neither did he - why.
If there have been any problems with near-misses or actual contact between the two groups of users, the obvious solution is to use the existing road markings and have one side of the bridge for pedestrians and one for cyclists until they reckon its safe for buses (at which point obviously all the pedestrians are going to have to use - gasp - a footpath).
If it is to be made pedestrian-only, I will have to start using the Albert and Chelsea Bridges, going very very slowly. I'm sure no-one will mind.
But with luck, it won't come to that - please use Transport for London's online feedback form to say 'keep sharing it' and don't forget to tell the Mayor too.
