Abstract

What role might a new Thames Gateway Bridge play in the regeneration of that area? GLA Economics' latest research to answer this question looks back to the building of bridges across the Thames in the medieval period. The report makes for an interesting read and reminds us that the impacts of infrastructure projects are complex and long term. But I'm not sure that it brings us much closer to providing an answer to the specific policy question. [An observation that could be made about much academic work - so no particular criticism implied.]
