Here’s an article from the Daily Telegraph discussing the proposed bridge a couple of months ago.
The Fan bridge will operate on Fridays only at the same time as the nearby rolling bridge.
Sadly these bridges will never see boats pass underneath as the structures are nothing more than a glorified folly (like the rest of the new developments around Paddington Basin – a modern carbuncle in the making!)
