I tried The Squinty Bridge for the first time today. It’s really nice (except for the prohibited left turns that Phyllis mentioned on her blog, but as a non-driver, that doesn’t affect me), but I was really annoyed by the way access is denied to the south east of the bridge (see the photo on the right, and also this and this).

Having lived in that area (the Festival Park) for three years, I do know that the owners regard that bit of the river front as their private garden. It’s really annoying people living there – they have a suburbian mentality that just is no good in the city centre!

Fortunately, there was a notice that the city council are still trying to open up the area. I really hope they’ll succeed!
