Fac­ing long wait for tube up­grade

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION - NAVIN SHAH AM Labour Lon­don Assem­bly Mem­ber for Brent and Har­row

COM­MUTERS re­ly­ing on the Metropoli­tan line will be un­der­stand­ably dis­ap­pointed to hear that they must wait a fur­ther five years un­til ‘faster and more fre­quent’ ser­vices are de­liv­ered as part of the long promised tube up­grade.

It’s sim­ply not good enough that, af­ter eight years, the Mayor of Lon­don has failed to com­plete what is not only the most cost ef­fi­cient up­grade to the Lon­don Un­der­ground, but the most ben­e­fi­cial to pas­sen­gers and Lon­don’s econ­omy.

This should have topped the Mayor’s list of pri­or­i­ties.
