U-turn on Garden Bridge upkeep costs just raises further questions – Caroline Pidgeon


 

Caroline Pidgeon AM, Liberal Democrat London Assembly transport spokesperson, commenting on the admission that the Mayor has agreed to underwrite Garden Bridge maintenance costs commented:

 

 

 

“It is concerning that only after the Mayor has given planning permission to the scheme and having allocated £30 million of public funds that he finally comes clean and admits that a financial guarantee has also been provided.  The Mayor should have been clear many months ago that far from the Garden Bridge being a private and charitable initiative it is actually a major drain on public funds.

 

 

 

“Everything about the funding and decision making process relating to the proposed Garden Bridge has so far been as murky as the water that flows down the Thames.”
