At the London Assembly's first ever online People's Question Time, Caroline discussed how to ensure London has world-class transport infrastructure.

City Hall relocation needs to stay on budget and schedule

As the Mayor announced that the Greater London Authority will move away from Central London to the Royal Docks, Caroline Pidgeon said:

"While I regret today's decision by the Mayor of London to leave City Hall i understand why he felt it necessary to make this decision given the financial climate.

"I will, however, be closely monitoring the move to ensure it remains on budget and schedule, delivering the level of savings outlined by the Mayor today.
