VERY BAD NEWS !!



London Garden Bridge Canceled Amid ‘Lack of Support’ From Mayor

Quote:
A group campaigning to build a tree-lined pedestrian bridge across the River Thames in central London scrapped the controversial project after it ran into opposition from Mayor Sadiq Khan. The Garden Bridge Trust said Monday it had “no choice” but to drop the plan because of the mayor’s lack of support. The project had been criticized for its ballooning costs, after an initial estimate of 60 million pounds ($78 million) was raised to 200 million pounds. Khan’s Conservative predecessor, Boris Johnson, had championed the idea of the bridge. Khan wrote to the chairman of the bridge trust in April saying he was not prepared to sign a guarantee for the annual maintenance costs, it said in a statement published on Monday. Without the guarantee, the project could not go ahead. A review into the planned structure by lawmaker Margaret Hodge, a member of Khan’s Labour Party, found that “decisions on the Garden Bridge were driven by electoral cycles rather than value for money.” She added that with current pressures on public spending, “it is difficult to justify further public investment in the Garden Bridge.” The decision to cancel construction comes after Khan said shortly after taking office last year that abandoning the project would cost more than finishing it.

I love how London is constantly changing amidst a "Brexit". I believe that the world in general is going through an exceptionally challenging period in history right now and the general public has a whole is starting to change its stance on the way they view the world.

London is a city where, yes, there are obvious problems that need to be dealt with, but the fact that the construction sector is booming so much is a testament to the genuine spirit of the city.

That's probably the worst bump you've wasted your 52 seconds to explore your eyes in, but hey, there could be worse posts....

What, you mean the French forum administrator responsible for doing it is so arrogant that he thinks no one will notice?

..or that he knows the people in charge of SSC just don't care that he's doing it?
