November 18th – If you read this journal regularly, you’ll know I’m not terribly impressed with Telford’s new pedestrian bridge, linking the railway station with the town centre over the line and rTelford ring road.
The bridge itself is an awful design that relies on lifts for wheelchair access and those lifts are highly unreliable. The structure has no rainwater control, and seems like a badly thought out, peculiarly executed piece of civil engineering hubris.
However, I will say this: Like Walsall bus station, at night with the thing lit up, you can kind of see what the architect was getting at.
The lighting in the stairs handrails is a particularly nice touch.
But it’s still a turd you can’t really. polish.
