Something to keep an eye out for:
On or about 18 October 2010, for a period of about one week, contractors working on behalf of the City of London will carry out a structural inspection of the Millennium Footbridge by roped access.
A safety boat, maintaining a continuous watch on VHF Channel 14, will be in attendance whilst the inspection is taking place.
I wonder if the required bale of straw will also be suspended from the bridge?
In a bit of whimsy, wouldn’t it be fun to switch off the dampers that stop the bridge wobbling and let us have a day of wobbly bridge again?

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
