Campaigning in Haringey

Caroline joined local Lib Dem Councillors and Assembly Candidate Dawn Barnes out knocking on doors in Stroud Green ward on Thursday followed by carrying out a bus survey about the W3 bus at Finsbury Park.

The route is officially the most complained about in London, with TfL receiving over fifty complaints from passengers in a four week period last autumn. Liberal Democrats held their own survey session at Finsbury Park bus station to find out why the bus route attracts so much criticism.

Caroline Pidgeon was joined by Haringey London Assembly candidate Dawn Barnes, Liberal Democrat leader on Haringey Council, Richard Wilson, and a number of other Lib Dem members. The survey asked whether there were enough buses at rush hour, whether there were enough buses at the weekends and if there were problems with the countdown displays.
