Caroline Pidgeon, Lib Dem, says that Boris Johnson's Garden Bridge "vanity project" is now "dead in the water" after Sadiq Khan has at long last made a decision not to guarantee future funding.
Commenting on the Mayor's announcement that the GLA will not be providing Mayoral guarantees for the Garden Bridge project Caroline said: “The Mayor has taken a year to make this decision and while he has been dithering more money has been wasted. Yet while it is regrettable that Sadiq Khan has taken so long to make a decision he has finally done the right thing following Dame Margaret Hodge's damning report.
“it is quite clear this vanity project of Boris Johnson's would end up as a bottomless pit for the public purse.
“It is now dead in the water and will be held up for many years as a case study on wasting public money and poor decision making at both government and Mayoral level.”
