Concrete vision?

LETTER

Re: Concrete walls will remain on the bridge, September 13 story.

One would have to have a concrete wall in their vision not to see the vista the exposed section of the Gladstone Road bridge has now presented as you cross it.

If these extremely unattractive concrete parapets are so historically significant that they cannot be lost, may I suggest that we leave a couple of examples at one or both ends of the bridge where their functional ugliness will not spoil our view of our beautiful and much more historically significant harbour?

I heartily agree with Mr Cunningham. There must be a clear solution to this issue, surely there is a compromise? Using the parapets as monuments, recycling them instead of pouring more.
