Iconic Bridge Gets Lick Of Paint

Tower Bridge will be treated to a £4 million facelift over the next four years. Beginning in the summer, the Victorian landmark will be stripped of paint and redaubed with blue and white.

At the same time, ugly sister Southwark Bridge will receive a fresh coat of green and yellow.

Goddamn awful London Bridge remains stubbornly concrete coloured.

The two repaintings are funded by the The City Bridge Trust, a repairer of London's bridges for some 900 years.

Meanwhile, you can follow the exploits of Tower Bridge via its very own Twitter feed. The tech-savvy crossing last opened for the SV Will, which passed downstream about 12 hours ago.
