SHOULD NOT THE OLYMPIC COMMITTEE BE PAYING FOR THIS?
Quote from Waterscape newsletter:
British Waterways is painting and carrying out necessary repairs to the blue bridge at Manchester Road in Docklands as part of the area’s preparations for the Olympic summer ahead.
The works will take place between 5 March and 18 May 2012 and will include a full repaint of the bridge. Mechanical and electrical repairs will be undertaken which will safeguard the reliability of the bridge in the future. British Waterways is investing £435,000 into the scheme and May Gurney will be carrying out the works.
Seems to me BW are giving an awful lot of money away that could be better used elsewhere like dredging the canal, repairing the locks and paying themselves vast bonuses
