Venice bridge plans provoke uproar

Comment

Anyone remember the ideas competition to replace this bridge, way back? Sure, came to nothing. Ah, but then at the other end of the canal, a new modern up to date and shiny bridge was planned - connecting the city's two transport interchanges which are very close ... but separated by the Grand Canal. This would have wonderful access for disabled people - and in a sense 83% of the heavy traffic would be disabled, as they would be dragging heavy suitcases... Pity in the end they got someone to put up a snazzy structure (even if usually with some kind of scaffolding hanging round it, as when I last saw it in May), but one over which every single weary tourist has to struggle to lift and carry every single case. It's just an academic issue really, of course.
