Government Backs New River Crossings | Londonist

Government Backs New River Crossings | Londonist:

and yet again the car looks like winning out over foot or cycling traffic. There are so many ways to cross the river by car already - how many by bike? The Dartford Bridge / tunnel requires you to wait for a vehicle to bus you through - slow and requires planning ahead for large groups.
The Woolwich and Greenwich foot tunnels require you to walk your bikes through and often to carry them up and down many, many steps. Not always even possible. I've been close to collapse coming up the woolwich steps on one accasion when i had quite heavy bags on the bike!
There's the ferry which stops at 8pm. I usually finish work around 7/8 pm.

Other ferries are expensive and difficult and slow.

Why can't we just have a FUCKING BRIDGE you arseholes?
