Northern Line extension “misleading”?
A London Assembly Member has accused Transport for London of deliberately misleading the public over plans to extend the Northern Line. The Leader of the Liberal Democrat London Assembly Group, Caroline Pidgeon, has claimed that two of the four proposals outlined in the public consultation have already been ruled out.
“This latest consultation is fundamentally flawed. Two of the possible routes have already been completely ruled out, so it is just misleading to include them in the latest consultation.
“TfL has already declared that option three won’t work because Vauxhall station cannot cope with the extra capacity, and option four because it would not be possible to place the route under the new US embassy building.
“Putting forward totally unrealistic options, which have no chance of seeing the light of day, is misleading the public and discredits the whole consultation process.”
The consultation runs until 10 August: www.northernlineextension.com
