Oh, so that's what the roadworks here are doing. They're literally just outside my flat. I can see the workers, and the mentioned slave memorial out of my window. I probably should be happy about this, since the Environment Agency occasionally likes to send me letters warning me about how my 4th floor flat is at serious risk of flooding, but I'm mainly peeved about the disruption. If they close off the bridge, or the pavement giving access to it, then I'll have to walk to the supermarket along the main road rather than along the river. Grump.
