NLA chair hits out at ‘nimby’ opposition to Nine Elms bridge


It’s amazing! In the past it was the “rich” that resisted change, whereas now it’s the “poor”? (No disrespect intended. I’m one of the “just managing” designers in the middle) There are Nimbies, (do it downstream of Tower Bridge) and NAAs, (Not Anything Anywhere) Yes, it’s a developer lead vanity project, so the Battersea flat people can walk to the Kings Rd in half an hour, but the residents of Churchill Gardens will get a free bridge so they can walk, jog or cycle to Battersea Park, avoiding the lorries and cars that might run them down on Chelsea or Vauxhall Bridge. I’d call that a facility for the local kids and OAPs. We need more pedestrian river crossings, breaking down the barriers and opening up the opportunities between the north and south of the river, and if someone is willing to pay for it.........what’s not to like?! Churchill Gardens to the Power Station is the best location. And I can’t see the US Embassy wanting a new bridge in their back yard? So get on with it! When it’s built everyone will wonder why it wasn’t done years ago?!
