London's Garden Bridge Over the Thames is Actually Happening

By Gary Cutlack on at

The mad plan to build a garden bridge over the Thames looks like it'll actually go ahead, with the £150m project set to be approved by planners this week.

The new walkway will span the Thames between Temple and the South Bank, with multiple walkways and -- uh-oh -- an "irregular top surface" so homeless people and cheapskate tourists don't end up camping on it. [Standard]
