'Very angry' Khan hits back at Garden Bridge Trust


Paul, over some 30 years we agreed on many issues but here we do not. Since I was brought in by the local residents ( as a bridge designer architect no less ) I stood against this project. The process was corrupt, the impact disregarded on many levels, and the design infantile and ungainly. Comparisons to NY Hi-way were insulting intelligence as in NY it was an ingenious reuse of obsolete infrastructure. Then as others said here I have no idea what TH was paid millions for and where the rest of my money went. I design bridges and these levels of fees look both improbable as well as obscene. Then I live 400m from that tower and watched it burning from my roof garden. It now looks like the same social mechanisms that were trying to 'give' us a 'Garden Bridge' may have lead to the Grenfell calamity.
