TfL faces another major bridge procurement row


This is another example of an attack on initiative and creativity, one of the hallmarks of the Garden Bridge saga, where the mad strategy of not building anything has cost ratepayers a fortune. The BFI's abandonment of the Ole Scheeren/Howarth Tompkings film centre is part of the same story: London can't be bothered to support people who want to get things done. reForm and Elliott Wood should not just be allowed, but should be encouraged to take part in this competition -- to reward their design research and their extensive work with the local community. What TfL is doing is punishing them in a most scandalous way for having had an idea pursued at their own expense.
