Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands reveals Thames Barrier bridge plans


I flew into Southend Airport yesterday for the first time. Very nice experience too, and a seat on a mostly-empty train in and out of London. Much more civilised way of travelling than any of the 4 main airports around the capital who are desperate for more runways and more passengers. Anyway, the point is- If the Thames Barrier is going to be swamped with rising sea levels (which won't happen) the entire Essex coast from Harwich southwards is going to be inundated and no matter what monstrous barrier plan is created, central London around the Thames will be lost. Maybe they should have a two-way tilt on this design, and bend it downwards when there is a flood warning .......
