End of PPP is welcome but the Mayor must now put passengers first with tube improvements
Caroline Pidgeon, the Liberal Democrat London Assembly Transport Spokesperson, commenting on the Mayor’s plans to end PPP for the London Underground said:
"I welcome the end of PPP deal, which has proved to be a huge mistake for both the taxpayer and travellers.
"More details are now desperately needed. Instead of warm words the Mayor must now step up to the plate with a detailed plan as to how he will deliver on tube improvements.
"This is also an opportunity to ensure the interests of passengers are now put first while upgrade works are completed. It is vital that in future works are carried out far more quickly, with far less disruption for passengers and London’s businesses."
