Reply To: Macken St Bridge – Santiago Calatrava
It’s a lovely thing, what a feature for the area – God knows the only flippin feature! It is light and elegant – if anything it could do without the chunky road element altogether to make it even more so!
It’s such a pity, such a shame, that the East Link opens, now Macken St opens, and yet the tall ships fall at the last hurdle that is the Matt Talbot, to enbable them to sit outside the Custom House, recreating that classic 18th century scene. What a shame, probably something that wasn’t even considered when the Matt Talbot, albeit a fine structure, was built.
Suppose the current craze for these ships didn’t exist at the time, and traffic congestion was something of a greater priority than creating postcard scenes 🙂
