I have to admit that I was always puzzled as to why the proposed bridge had to be in that location and no other. If it really was going to form part of the transport infrastructure (hence TfL's involvement) and bring all round improvement and general wonderfulness to our area, surely another more 'needy' part of the River Thames would do very well as an alternative. Could it possibly be that only such a prominent position could satisfy the numerous egos involved? Surely that can't be the case!

- the bridge had to be there because it's the best spot for private parties
- TfL should have had nothing to do with it. It was never a serious part of anyone's infrastructure. See the "we're quitting" letter from the Bridge Trust to Sadiq Khan where they base a chunk of their case on the evidence of an expert on "visitor attractions"
