Caroline Pidgeon has written to the Secretary of State for Transport asking for him to consider including the Southeastern route between Stratford International and St Pancras in the Travelcard Zoning System.

City Hall relocation needs to stay on budget and schedule

As the Mayor announced that the Greater London Authority will move away from Central London to the Royal Docks, Caroline Pidgeon said:
