Let's get on and build the Rotherhithe Bridge

Speaking to the WISE16 website, Caroline gave her strong support to the Rotherhithe to Canary Wharf bridge project, and discussed how to ensure it is a success.

The case against Heathrow expansion is as strong as when Theresa May and David Cameron made it

Caroline Pidgeon, Liberal Democrat London Assembly Member, commenting on the Government’s intention to support a third Heathrow runway, said:

"After an incredibly expensive lobbying campaign the Government has ‎foolishly accepted the myth that what is good for the overseas owners of Heathrow is also good for the UK economy.

"The reality is that airports such as Luton and Stansted have spare capacity. And in time HS2 will also allow easy access ‎to Birmingham airport for many Londoners.

Campaigning to improve the A23 in Streatham

Caroline Pidgeon joined A23 campaigners in Streatham on Thursday 13th October to discuss a range of issues on Streatham High Road from dangerous driving by motorcyclists, to the need for safe pedestrian crossings and a much better environment in the area. Caroline then did a walkabout from the South Circular to Streatham Station to look first hand at concerns.

“It is clear that having a fast dual carriageway through the heart of Streatham is damaging to the local community. With some investment, particularly at the Streatham Hill end of the High Road and better planning for pedestrians and cyclists along its length, the High Road can be transformed to help strengthen the Streatham Community and green the area” commented Caroline.

Out and about in Witney

Caroline Pidgeon AM was joined by her former ward colleague James Gurling out and about in Witney, supporting the Lib Dems Liz Leffman in the parliamentary by-election following the resignation of David Cameron.

“It was really good to hear from local residents their concerns including some who had voted to leave the EU and now felt it was a big mistake” commented Caroline.

Helping the team in Lewisham

Caroline Pidgeon joined local Lewisham activists and Brockley by-election candidate Bobby Dean in the recent council by-election.

Bobby and the local Lib Dems made a real impact in the short weeks of the campaign and picked up real concerns with how the Labour council is being run and local views ignored.
