Hi all

Does anyone know what is happening with the proposed closure of tower bridge due to the painting of it?!

I know that it was mentioned a while ago that it was going to close for 3 months but that was supposed to happen in 2010... but clearly didn't!

It came up in conversation the other night and I realised I didn't know!

They managed to alter the plan to ensure the bridge could remain open during the day. There were a series of night time closures instead which took place last year.

The Bridge was going to be closed to carry out work on the High Level Walkways and some parts of the Bascules, after discussion with CoL, TfL and PLA, an alternative method of work was proposed and accepted which resulted in just 28 night-time closures.

I'm pleased that some of you didn't even notice !

The re-painting work is on programme and we will be out of everyones way by the end of March.

Thanks for everyones patience whilst the work has been going on.
