26 May (Part 1) - Say goodbye to the bridge that gave the area its name

Harrow ManorwayAfter a couple of deferments and a cock-up over planning permissions, Bexley Council will begin its Harrow Manorway improvement scheme by knocking down Tavy Bridge, the eyesore that an American BiB reader described as the ugliest bridge in the world.

Presumably a weekend road closure will minimise the inevitable traffic chaos but Harrow Manorway is the only sensible route into Thamesmead for most people. Presumably it will deter anyone intending to go to The Link on Saturday for the Erith & Thamesmead hustings.

It won’t help if the Sainsbury’s pedestrian crossing isn’t fixed before then. Driving home just after midnight last night it caught me for no obvious reason and this morning soon after six it was once again holding traffic while nobody was there; and unless I have gone deaf it wasn’t beeping either.
