Reply To: Loop Line Bridge – Why can’t they just do this???
I’m with Notjim. Although it does block a view, I feel that it’s an excellent bridge, and will eventually be missed if we take it away.
I’d also like to point out that there are trees along the side of the Liffey that also heavily obstruct the view of the Customs House, and which will only degrade the view further in time.
I think a balanced look at the pros and cons of removing this bridge would have the adverts removed, and the bridge slightly restored. Why would we want to go to all the trouble of moving an entire railway line just to slightly improve a view already partailly obstructed by trees? It just seems a waste of money.
