Brockley Central reports that Boris has ruled out supporting a proposed pedestrian and cyclist bridge at Rotherhithe.
Green Assembly Member Darren Johnson is unimpressed:
"This is an excellent scheme, but we will have to wait for a more imaginative mayor to build it...
"This connecting bridge is the type of investment which has to be made if walking and cycling are going to be made easier and more enjoyable. I hope that Boris Johnson will think again, but I suspect that he won't. This Mayor is getting a reputation for closing down innovation and new transport schemes."
Now I can understand why supporters of the bridge are disappointed, and when Boris is intent on pouring billions into the Thames estuary, £65 million for a bridge doesn't sound too bad.
But unlike other projects tossed on to the bonfire last year, this bridge was never even on the long-list for funding by TfL.
The project would also almost certainly have met resistance from the Port of London Authority who generally oppose crossings where sight-lines aren't clear.
So while I share Nick's frustration about the absurd lack of crossings in this part of London, this is one project that was unlikely to get off the ground
