Lib Dems challenge Boris to support Wimbledon Chase bridge clean-up
London’s Mayor, Boris Johnson, was challenged to put pressure on Network Rail about the state of the bridge near Wimbledon Chase Station.
Lib Dem London Assembly member Caroline Pidgeon asked the Mayor:
Will you put pressure on Network Rail and the new Minister for Rail to improve the bridge as soon as possible?
Unfortunately Boris just pointed out that the bridge is the responsibility of Network Rail – which is rather missing the point!
Network Rail have previously said it would be too expensive to repaint the bridge, which is an eyesore because of grafitti.
