ES Views Letter of the Day: Other options for the Garden Bridge

A bridge too far for the Mayor: Sadiq Khan has scrapped the controversial plan

It is a shame to see Sadiq Khan withdraw his support for the Garden Bridge.

This would have been an iconic landmark celebrating London’s green spaces and could have provided a much-needed boost for the local economy. I hope the Mayor finds another green scheme to back.

Let's hope the Mayor will now focus on building bridges that take people to where they want to go.

The most cost-effective option would be to build a bridge for pedestrians and cyclists only. With the added benefits of limited noise and air pollution, it would ensure Londoners are happier and safer.
Teddy Edwards

It is great news that Sadiq Khan has pulled the plug on the Garden Bridge. London needs to spend money on homes and public services, not vanity projects.
