Bridge

Warning: This post was published more than 14 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 14 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

The new design for the bridge in Stockton has been decided. Five designs were drawn up for the bridge (which will go from the university campus to the other side of the river, where there is currently – well, nothing, actually). These designs were then put to a public vote, via post, phone and online. The overwhelming winner of the vote was design ‘D’. So they’re building design ‘C’. No, I didn’t understand either.

Also, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the David Lloyd Leisure Club in Stockton. This is basically a very, very nice gym which costs £49 a month to join. Anyone who knows me will be aware that joining a gym is about the last thing on earth that I’m likely to do, but I did invite myself to the members only bonfire night party (along with two female student friends), and enjoyed a complimentary buffet and the waited-on drinks service on the terrace whilst watching the Stockton Festival of Fireworks – defintely the best way to see them (not in a huge, freezing crowd of 100,000 craning their necks to see anything). So thanks, David Lloyd.
