Now that the Garden Bridge is staring into the abyss, what might replace it?


Thames Baths "preferred location is now along the South Bank"? This is one of the very genuine reasons why people are objecting to the Garden Bridge i.e. it would bring more overcrowding to an area already bursting with tourists. How about putting it where it's (more) needed? The South Bank already has over 25 attractions within a 2 mile stretch of the Thames and 26 million visitors each year. More needs to be done to spread the load and divert attention from the overloaded playground of zone 1 (which is just as much a residential area as well), to areas that need regenerating and revitalising along the river and or better still, beyond. Look at how successful the King's Cross Pond Club is; let's be innovative in ways that transform our grey/brown sites rather than cluttering up the Thames.
