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.

Why is the police watchdog taking so long over the Johnson-Arcuri investigation?

Caroline Pidgeon described the frustration of London Assembly members that they cannot start investigating the relationship between Jennifer Arcuri and Boris Johnson while he was Mayor, because the Independent Office for Police Conduct has been deliberating since September on whether to launch its own investigation.

Caroline told the Guardian:

Campaigning in Wallington
