Thames Garden Bridge pilings and a couple of other observations

Jump to last reply

I couldn't convince either my husband or our daughter to be excited about the new Garden Bridge over the Thames, so I'll try here. May we all someday walk over it!

A few weeks ago we three toured King's College London, where she'll be doing grad studies for the next year. The Garden Bridge is to be built pretty much at the foot of KCL and Somerset house, between Blackfriar's and Waterloo It is to be a pedestrian bridge planted with, if the pamphlet is to be believed, gardens, and will be closed occasionally for private events. They appear to be raising funds for it still. I'd send them a pound or two just to be part of it.

On June 15, walking near the Temple tube stop, I could see the bright red apparatus on the near bank, driving pilings. July 1, from the terrace of the National Theatre, we could see the pile driver out midriver, doing its pile-driving thing.
