Tories: a bit too little, too late on Wimbledon Chase Railway Bridge

The Tory London Assembly Member for Merton & Wandsworth has tabled a question for London Mayor Boris Johnson asking him:

The Wimbledon Chase Station Bridge is covered in graffiti. Will you write to Network Rail calling for them to repaint it?

Perhaps Conservative Richard Tracey AM just wasn’t present when Lib Dem Caroline Pidgeon asked Boris the same question back in July 2010?

Boris wasn’t keen to help then, but perhaps Mr Tracey will have more luck.

However, the timing of Mr Tracey’s question is very peculiar given Network Rail’s announcement on 28 October that it would clean up the worst parts of the bridge. This announcement followed a two year campaign to get them to take action.

Perhaps it would be worth him flicking through the Wimbledon Guardian each week – they covered the story on 1 November.

    Richard Tracey withdrew the question before Boris could answer it.
