The Garden Bridge is not London's answer to the New York High Line

Comment

Excellent statement, highlighting what a city really needs for regeneration, when neighbourhoods are threatened, and a decadent scheme that is an extravagant folly to pander to celebrity and trendy designer egos. Just to increase London's tourist potential is a lousy argument -for London has in fact more than it can cope with. It is indeed a treasure house for those who live here and visit here. What is at question here is not the doggy tendering and selection process, and the probability of the project vastly exceeding its projected costs which will be yet another burden on TfL and the taxpayer. No, the question, already answered by the majority of feeling, is that whether we need this bridge at this location at all. The answer is that bridges are needed at more critical points eats and west of Waterloo Bridge. This one must not be allowed to go ahead.
