Back in March 2016 the Garden Bridge Trust put out a press release celebrating with delight the signing of a construction contract with Bouygues TP and Cimolai SpA. There were raised eyebrows at the time as to why they had decided to do this while facing seemingly insurmountable hurdles and huge public and political opposition. But, sign it they did, and because they then defaulted on publishing their accounts we still don’t quite know the financial repercussions of it.
But as the months have passed by other bits of information do come out, even if their opaque finances remain concealed. In this post – sent in by an anonymous Garden Bridge opponant – we compare what was said in that press release with what we now know as fact.
The original press release can be read HERE on the Garden Bridge (mis)Trust website, but is reproduced below with three simple points. Then a huge question for Transport for London, Boris Johnson and the Garden Bridge Trust – why did they sign these contracts at that point, what was the rush and why was there no oversight?
