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?
