Have signed the petition.
We should not waste public money on vanity projects, such as this, that are unnecessary and will spoil one of the best views in London.
Who on earth needs to cross from Temple to the South Bank or vice versa, if one uses the tube one has to pass Blackfriars station and Bridge or Embankment station and Hungerford Bridge,both of which link directly to South Bank,
to get to Temple station.
, Waterloo Bridge
and Hungerford Bridge all lead to interesting parts of South Bank the proposed bridge goes from nowhere of interest to nowhere of interest. Sorry Gabriels Wharf but you are not a point of destination for visitors.
Commuters will continue to use Waterloo and Blackfriars bridges to get to work.
So who benefits from this airy fairy idea? The money men or investors who will eventually walk away when the maintenance costs rocket and the public purse is called upon once again to bail them out. And where will the angel of novelty on the Southbank, Joanna Lumley, be? Counting her fees as the distracting and acceptable public face of this project.
