Letter: Cardiff has been saved from an operatic folly

From Dr Gordon Wilson

Sir: I was intrigued by the unimaginative assumptions implicit in your headline, "No daring, no imagination, just cycle paths" (23 December), and the article that followed. I, too, long to dare, and both cycle paths and opera houses feature in my hopes. A traffic-free cycle ride and a beautifully sung aria feed my emotions in similar ways. So I imagine that Wales gets its new opera house but not a car park to go with it. I imagine that it has a covered, secure cycle park, and a public transport system to get everyone else there.

Finally, I imagine that my proposal is funded by reparations from those who have so unimaginatively waged war on the quality of life in this country for the past 16 years.

Yours faithfully,

Gordon Wilson
