Caroline Pidgeon welcomes reprieve for the Woolwich Ferries

Caroline Pidgeon, the Liberal Democrat London Assembly transport spokesperson, commenting on this week’s decision by TfL to not scrap the Woolwich Ferry, but instead to purchase two new vessels to replace the three existing life-expired craft, said:

“I very much welcome this back down by TfL.

“In the rush to push ahead with the tolled Silvertown Tunnel and other road crossings TfL were willing to sacrifice the free Woolwich Ferry, which is not only popular locally but incredibly helpful for pedestrians and cyclists.
