They should put picnic tables around it so that people can sit and admire the creative talent that was deployed in the design.

Minimalistic would you say DTease ??

They'll never manage to sail visiting ocean liners under there!

It's definitely that Helen. 'Functional' in the extreme.
One occasion where graffiti would be welcome Mick.

A bridge too far?

Ample room on the bridge for Banksy to depict a rowing Eight. I can see it now, with speech bubbles from cox Veronica; Feeling strong, We're movin' now, Swing together, Girls . . . .

Philip, he could make an exception and give Veronica some bottle green shorts.
She would be in the rear with a cloud of wasps and midges around her head and a bottle of vinegar in her hand shouting "Faster girls, faster".

Unfortunately , the type of Cox that are most likely to adorn the bridge have been aired before.

Strangely enough - I bought the complete collection of " It ain't Half Hot Mum" today in Sainsbury's. The picture on the front shows the cast and Gunner 'Lofty' Sugden (aka Don Estelle )is wearing shorts just like the ones I wore at school - down to his knees- aaaggghhh!****But what a great voice that man had.

And how splendid she would then appear, DTease; Proud with champer hidden beneath her thwart, and shocked when passing the Howfen 'Group sketching intently half a mile downstream.

I must confess Poet, I feel a tad inadequate when I see the size of some of the drawing you refer to.
I think the artist must be a fisherman and prone to a little exaggeration.
