Silvertown Tunnel contracts will now be made public - but the Mayor must do so before the election

Following pressure from Caroline Pidgeon in the London Assembly, the Mayor has now committed to make public the details of the contracts to build the £1bn Silvertown Tunnel.

Caroline commented:

"It is simply incredible that the £1bn project is going ahead, when we should be spending much more on cycling and pedestrian transport infrastructure.

"The Mayor needs to release the contracts for the Silvertown Tunnel, as promised, before the London elections."

Boasting about the ULEZ while building the Silvertown Tunnel is a massive contradiction

Commenting on the newly published report predicting that the Ultra Low Emission Zone will save the NHS around £5 billion over the next 30 years, Caroline Pidgeon said:

“I welcome this report, indeed its positive findings are a powerful case for the Ultra Low Emission Zone being extended even further. It is perplexing that in October 2021 it will go up to, but not actually include the South and North Circular roads.

Mayor must now deliver on the Bakerloo Line extension

Caroline Pidgeon, Liberal Democrat London Assembly Member, has expressed her full support for the extension of the Bakerloo Line.

Setting out her reasons for backing the extension in a detailed submission to TfL’s consultation, Caroline Pidgeon said:

“South East London is at present poorly served by the Underground network. The extension is vital for regeneration in Southwark and Lewisham and for opening up new employment opportunities for thousands of people.
