Make Harrow on the Hill station accessible

Caroline Pidgeon AM recently visited Harrow on the Hill to put her support behind the campaign by Harrow Observer to have the long-awaited lifts installed at the station. Caroline was joined by local Lib Dem Councillors Chris Noyce and Paul Scott.

Step-free access is vital at this station which sees around 10 million people use it every year. It is an important interchange between two branches of the Metropolitan line and the London Marylebone to Aylesbury overground rail service.

Dangerous junction at Tavistock Place and Marchmont Street

Caroline recently visited the junction of Tavistock Place and Marchmont Street with local campaigner Lee Baker and Local Residents’ Association Chair Ricci de Freitas, to look at how dangerous the road layout had become.

The junction had been redesigned by Transport for London, resulting in a very strange cycle lane, with arrows going in all directions at one point, and pedestrian crossings not where people actually cross the road.

New Academy coming to East Dulwich

On Thursday 11 June Caroline Pidgeon joined Lord Harris of Peckham and other staff and project managers at the official start of the building of the new East Dulwich Boys' Academy on Peckham Rye.

Caroline worked hard with local councillors, MPs, residents and the Harris Federation to ensure the school got through every hurdle to be built.

"I was delighted to be invited along to celebrate the start of the building work on the new boys' school. A high quality education is so important for our young people. East Dulwich really needed a local boys' secondary school and I am thrilled that from this September there will be 150 boys starting their education at the school - though starting their first year in temporary accommodation in Dulwich" said Caroline Pidgeon AM.
