A Bridge Too Far

Letter in The Daily Telegraph 12 May 2015

SIR – The problem with London’s proposed garden bridge (Letters, May 8) is the location.
Its trees would obstruct the splendid views of the towers of the City of London and the dome of St Paul’s Cathedral, seen from all the way across Waterloo Bridge and Hungerford footbridge.
Such a project would be more welcome in a place where it might enliven a dull length of river, such as near Vauxhall Bridge, rather than downgrading one of London’s most evocative views.
