The woman injured in a collision a few days back turns out to be a senior doctor, and has spoken out against Boris's proposal to restore the 30MPH limit on Blackfriars Bridge. The London Assembly vote on the issue is today, and it's expected to go in favour of retaining the 20MPH limit. However, this is not binding on the Mayor so likely won't change anything. However, this has become something of a cause celebre, so perhaps LCC will be organizing another protest on the issue.
It's less important whether this issue is won or lost than a marker is put down indicating that both TfL and the politicians will be hauled over the coals in a very public way if another similar cycling-hostile scheme goes through on the nod.
