Update: Tortured Tree under bridge on Brick Lane
amazingly new leaves have started to grow on the tree under the bridge on brick lane. the tree is still tied up and now has scaffolding above it with a builders 'pallet' sand bag over the top of the tree in a scaffolders effort to protect the tree. this section of brick lane has been closed off for around a year now for the ongoing works on the east london line extension. i've watched other bridges constructed along the same route (New Inn Yard & Holywell Lane) that have been finished and opened up to the public only to be closed, knocked down and remade weeks later -does anyone working on the project know whats going on? from a public point of view, major mistakes have been made.
