Does anyone know if Lambeth is going to do up this eyesore?It is forming a natural barrier and visitors to the area don't want to venture any further to see Lower Marsh etc.It would be great if illuminated,cleaned on a regular basis and chromed instead of being dang and uninviting.
I agree, I walk under the bridge everyday on the way to and from work and it is such a contrast when you emerge on the other side to the massive hotel. I have never felt unsafe under the bridge, but it is pretty manky, and after it has rained there are lots of drips. So far I have avoided pigeon droppings but it can only be a matter of time!
I had heard that the Park Plaza people were supposed to be investing money in making it nicer (along with other bits of the local area) but when the hotel was finished that bit was forgotten, but I heard that second hand so it may not be true.
A bit of a clean, some better lighting and some directions for the tourists would make a world of difference.
Why do they need to paint/graffiti proof the walls?
I though that under all that grime - which is probably held on by a century of oil oozing through from trains and points on the tracks, the wall surfaces are mostly glazed bricks, which ought to come up quite nicely if they steam clean.
