New design fails to bridge gap

MAY I through your letters page say how much I was disappointed that the bridges offered to replace St Botolph’s bridge are so unworthy of this important position.

I was looking forward to a better design that would enhance the town’s architectural mixture for many years to come.

The present Town Bridge has ‘presence’ as have Hospital Bridge and the brick-arched bridges over the drains in the area which were built long ago.

Unfortunately, the ones proposed will be mediocre and look as sad as the present one in a few years.
