Reviewing the situation with Crossrail, Caroline Pidgeon has expressed her concern that services through Central London may well still be two years away.
Caroline told City AM:
"The stark reality is that, although I hope Crossrail opens in early 2021, there are no clear assurances being provided that it will be the case.
"In fact, it is looking very likely that the central section of the line will not be open until the end of 2021, with full integration of the line being even further away."
Caroline Pidgeon, Liberal Democrat London Assembly Member, has expressed her full support for the extension of the Bakerloo Line.
Setting out her reasons for backing the extension in a detailed submission to TfL’s consultation, Caroline Pidgeon said:
“South East London is at present poorly served by the Underground network. The extension is vital for regeneration in Southwark and Lewisham and for opening up new employment opportunities for thousands of people.
Caroline had a great evening at the Brompton Bicycle Active Travel hustings on 3rd December, putting forward the Liberal Democrat vision for a more active, healthy and environmentally conscious Britain.
