Good news, Boris is seeing sense over the super sewer! He has promised a full consultation on the project.
Boris said in the Evening Standard
It is vital that we clean up the Thames and I am committed to support measures that achieve this. But I am increasingly concerned over the rising cost that it will impose on Londoners, already hard hit by the current economic climate, and also the severe disruption for many people in some parts of London. We need greater clarity on whether this is indeed the best scheme that could be devised.
