Current Status

The Mayor gave the unequivocal go-ahead for the bridge on 4th October 2016, with the prospect that it would be completed in 2020.

On 21 June 2019 we received a communication stating that the development would be “paused” due to cost concerns

Our view:

  • We believe that “paused” is politician speak for “cancelled”
  • We are highly suspicious that this is a political decision and that the financial case has been worked up to support the political decision
  • The financial case,  which includes HUGE amounts of contingency must be subject to scrutiny
