After a year of dithering the Mayor finally does the right thing on the Garden Bridge

Caroline Pidgeon, Liberal Democrat London Assembly Member, commenting on today’s announcement by the Mayor that the GLA will not be providing Mayoral guarantees for the Garden Bridge project, 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.”
