"Boris Johnson's flagship regeneration scheme at Old Oak Common is in danger of turning into London’s 'worst cock-up in 50 years', a leading government adviser warned today.
"Urban planner Sir Terry Farrell said the £10 billion development, the biggest in Britain, is heading for disaster because of the rush to finish Crossrail.
"He blamed politicians for ducking key decisions and said the Mayor was partly responsible for a shortsighted 'pass the parcel' approach. Sir Terry said: 'If a tenth of the energy he put into the Boris island airport idea had gone into Old Oak Common I feel sure it would have happened without a problem.'"
