in principle the western link isn’t a bad idea and a lot of opposition could be avoided if it wasn’t just functional but also a landmark. most people are simply opposed to it because it will likely be some anonymous viaduct with no design quality. people are not opposed to these things if they are beautiful. for example the welland viaduct or a modern solution the millau viaduct. if the council presented this as a monument it would be much better recieved.
