Campaigning for safe crossings in Lewisham

Caroline Pidgeon, Lib Dem chair of the London Assembly's Transport Committee, has visited the Tiger's Head junction between Bromley Road and Whitefoot Lane in Lewisham. In the video above, Caroline speaks about her campaign to have the Mayor and Transport for London act on junctions like this which put pedestrians in danger.

Caroline speaks to West London Line user group

Caroline Pidgeon AM, the Liberal Democrat Chair of the Transport Committee at City Hall, was one of the speakers at the West London Line Group’s recent event at West Brompton.

Caroline joined members of the rail user group including its Chair Mark Balaam for a tour of the station and a discussion about many of the ongoing issues the group are campaigning for.

“It was great to hear the history of this important railway line. It is very important that as part of the Sussex Rail Utilisation Strategy, this line is seen as a good way to help passengers to travel across the capital without having to go into the centre of London. It has huge potential and I hope the Government and Mayor of London consider many of the good ideas the West London Line Group are proposing” commented Caroline Pidgeon.

Get Central Road Moving!

Caroline joined Lib Dem Councillors and campaigners and Nonsuch By-Election candidate Gerry Jerome at Worcester Park on Saturday 20th June to campaign to get Central Road moving!

Traffic engineers believe that changing the phasing of the traffic lights will see great improvements. However, despite much disturbance whilst the road was dug up and new cabling was installed, Transport for London have not made the necessary changes.

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.
