On Friday I posted a comment to Twitter noting that river crossings to South-East London suck if you're going by road. I was at that time stuck in gridlock hell in the Docklands. There was an accident at Bromley-by-Bow which had fubar'd the Blackwall Tunnel.
This had a knock-on effect on the Woolwich ferry as everyone thought they would go that way causing massive tailbacks to City Airport on one side and Gallions Reach and UEL on the other. Now the only reason I was even there was because there was a 10 mile queue on the M25 for the QE2 Bridge. Oh yes, the Rotherhithe tunnel was knackered too.
This is the big problem that the Mayor, whoever it is, has got to sort out. I don't know whether the Thames Gateway bridge into Thamesmead will ever happen but I hope it does because getting from Easty London to South-East London is hell unless you do it in the middle of the night.
Ok morning rant over.
