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.

An independent enquiry is needed into the Croydon tram tragedy

Caroline Pidgeon is continuing to press Transport for London to hold an independent enquiry into the 2016 tram crash in Croydon which killed 7 people and injured 62.

After the Deputy Mayor refused an enquiry, Caroline said:

“We still have a lot of questions for TfL to answer on its past record on safety issues and especially why it failed to share vital information while the investigations into the Sandilands tram crash were being undertaken.
