Why do you like the idea?
I can't see anything beneficial in building another large structure in that location.
If we need another bridge:
- it needs to be open 24/7
- it doesn't need to be in an area where there are loads of bridges already
- it could be built for a LOT less than the Garden Bridge
If we need another attraction for London (and I don't really think that we do. I'd rather improve current infrastructure to allow people to enjoy the existing attractions more easily):
- it doesn't need to be anywhere near the South Bank
- it probably doesn't need to be a bridge

I suppose my objection is that it('s not needed and it) would detract from one of the areas that I go to find inspiration.
Put it over towards Vauxhall, for instance, and it might encourage me to find another part of London to enjoy. I don't need more reasons to enjoy the Southbank, and I don't think the Southbank can sustain any more buildings and footfall, so I think I'll enjoy it less if this bridge goes ahead.
