Sadiq Khan pulls plug on Garden Bridge


For Paul Finch - don't despair, if it's as wonderful an idea as some claim then surely a knight in shining armour will appear and offer to make up the shortfall in finance. But it would be worth checking the selfless benefactor's source of income - and wouldn't it be nice if the designers produced more images to show how the bridge really would look, to people rather than passing drones? The one image that I've seen from a pedestrian's viewpoint (other than actually on the bridge) - suggests that at the landfalls it's a clumsy dysfunctional lump, and the elegance of the bridge itself is far from obvious, as viewed from the banks of the river it's surely likely to be a very hefty structure indeed.
