Government's short-termism on transport harms London and the whole country

Speaking to ITV News, Caroline Pidgeon criticised the short-term approach of the Government to London transport, with inadequate funding deals that result in slower and ultimately more expensive projects.

Caroline said:

"The UK Conservative Government has once again failed to adequately invest in the future of London's public transport.

"By constantly forcing TfL to operate on a short-term basis the Conservatives are ensuring that projects will end up costing more overall and that those that require long-term funding commitments have their futures placed in doubt.

"The UK Government cannot continue to short-change London and expect it to continue to drive growth across the UK."
