I think there will be PLA and probably police enforcementthe council have covered their arses by banning traffic-----if i was stuck on the wrong side i would just take my chance and go under
The PLA are known for playing hardball though aren't they.What price the criminal record?
I suspect the offence will be one under the Port of London Act, obstruction of, or failure to comply with orders of, an officer of the Port Authority. The PLA have issued a notice closing that part of the river to navigation, and establishing an exclusion zone.what criminal record? its a council bye law or similar they will have used to give them the power to say it's closed. You dont get a criminial record for speeding or numerous other minor offences.
It's possible that the terrorism act could have been employed as well because there must now be a risk that someone may wish to bring the bridge down.I suspect the offence will be one under the Port of London Act, obstruction of, or failure to comply with orders of, an officer of the Port Authority.

I saw a pontoon bridge in Paris which had a moveable section with an outboard motor and a bridge keeper. He gated the bridge then motored the central section out the way to allow boats past.Local MP is pushing for a pontoon bridge for pedestrians. Presumably that would completely close the river to traffic.
