Walking back from the cinema at West India Quay last night, I looked up at the DLR viaduct and something didn't seem right. There were huge numbers of workers in high-visibility vests scurrying around, pulling ropes and driving machinery.
There was still about ten hours left until the system had to be open again but something didn't seem right... I said something like: "looks like we'll be walking tomorrow".
And so it has turned out...
I thought they would over-run because of the weather (it was pouring down) but, if the first comment above is to be believed, the problem was actually with one of the bridges.
If so, why didn't they bother to email those on their mailing list once they realised so we could make alternative plans?
