London's third Millennium fairground attraction !
(i) The Dome was condemned during construction
(ii) the London Eye provides a view (at a price) of Saint Pauls which the Footbridge now obscures
(iii) on opening, the £18M Footbridge was not fit for use.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder; personally I have seen more aesthetically pleasing pylons.

Rule number two is to learn by your mistakes. Rule number one is to learn by other peoples mistakes.
To all learning Engineers - beware.
