TfL deal to include ferry replacement service

The goverment's bailout agreement with TfL, signed this weekend, includes a requirement for TfL to start a temporary ferry service while the bridge is closed to pedestrians and people on bikes.

In any other major city in the world, the government would subsidise travel - but of course, because London has a Labour Mayor, there has to be a long battle with Grant Shapps, Boris Johnson et al for a "bailout".

And of course, this will eventually have to be paid for by raising fares.
