Conservative London Assembly transport spokesman, Richard Tracey, has congratulated the Mayor of London on the East London line phase 2 to Clapham Junction getting the green light.
Speaking as Boris announced plans to complete the missing link in London’s orbital railway, Mr Tracey said, “This is fantastic news for the travelling public; for boosting the economy; for improving London’s transport infrastructure; for providing an alternative north-south link when Thameslink is out of action; and for providing a crucial route for people from the south and west of London travelling to the Olympic Games in 2012.Last modified on Thursday, 01 April 2010 13:09
“As the London Assembly member for Merton & Wandsworth, which will directly benefit from the building of Phase 2, I particularly welcome today’s announcement.
“Boris is boosting real, important, public transport services – not wasting millions on pipe dreams that were never going to happen.”
