Re: Guess where I've just been

North Greenwich (o2 dome) to Royal Victoria Dock (ExCeL centre). Why? Because Boris wanted a vanity project - an alternative to a foot brige first proposed in 2007 between North Greenwich and Canary Wharf...

It is meant to serve some purpose during the Olympics to join up two venues. Otherwise its just a tourist trap. My cinicism is slightly justified. The price tag, Emirats sponsorship of 34m and them staining my Tube Map for eternity with their name on the landing sites forever more even after the 10 year deal ends. But its another story
