Close collaboration on bridge never faltered

  • Comment

If actions speak louder than words, please be assured that our team, architects and engineers, myself included, have never stopped working together, all hours, to sort out the problems of the Millennium Bridge project.

Although the lead consultancy has been shared at varying stages by Ove Arup and ourselves this has never changed the spirit of the shared endeavour. The team that created the design is committed, with everyone else involved, to bringing it to a successful conclusion. At no time have we ever been divided. If the impression has been given that I see the problem as one for the engineers, I do not. I see it as a problem for the whole team.

I believed that I had made this clear in every exchange on the subject. After 25 years of close collaboration with Ove Arup, and many more to come, it could never be otherwise.
