Newham tube lift chaos

Caroline Pidgeon is continuing to raise the issue of excessive lift closures in West Ham, East Ham and Canning Town tube stations - particularly East Ham, where the lifts closed nearly 200 times in 2016.

Caroline said:

“When tube lifts stop operating with no prior notice, the station is in effect closed for disabled people, parents with buggies and everyone else who relies on the operation of lifts.”

“It is time the Mayor of London finally got a grip on this issue and ensured these types of closures stop occurring.”
