The Financial Times (Oct 24, p6) reported on the floating of the

central span of Bristol's new 'horned' bridge - named after the striking design of the weighting apparatus which allows the bridge to be raised for passing ships.

The bridge forms part of the£400m Bristol Harbourside scheme - one of

Europe's biggest urban renewal projects.

Paul Smith, chairman of leisure services at Bristol city council told the paper that the city was still recovering from the Arts Council's refusal to fund it with£58m to build an arts centre for the scheme.

'There's still a lot of grieving to be gone through. It was a blow but we have continued our faith in the programme. All the elements stand

separately,' he said.
