Description

Historic Railway bridge

Historic Railway bridge in Leicester UK due for demolition. Sold for the princely sum of £1 to DMU De Montfort University on condition it's totally demolished and got rid of. Will cost as much to renovate as to demolish, so of course it has to go despite vociferous protests but is very much against the wishes of the local population.

The main arguments seem to be it will cost a lot to restore but this has been proven to be a pile of sh!! The renovation and demoltion costs are the same. plus the fact it was sold for £1 at a public excluded meeting.And its very much against populsr opinion. IIm not sure if these peopkle can be voted out but they will be.
