Caroline Pidgeon, Liberal Democrat London Assembly Member, commenting on Sadiq Khan’s announcement today declaring his support for the Garden Bridge said:
“Today’s decision is highly disappointing.
“Instead of tinkering with minor changes from the Garden Bridge Trust the Mayor should be seeking to recoup every penny of Transport for London funding that has been allocated to this highly controversial project.
“The Mayor should also be refusing to underwrite the annual maintenance costs of this project.
“There are numerous transport projects in London that desperately need public funding and are a far higher priority than this vanity project from the previous Mayor.”
