Members of the London Assembly have tabled questions to the new Labour mayor Sadiq Khan about his plans for transport in the Rotherhithe area.
Florence Eshalomi, newly elected as Labour’s London Assembly member for the Lambeth & Southwark constituency (in succession to Val Shawcross) has asked the mayor:
What steps will the Mayor take to improve transport at Canada Water, specifically will he support a new pedestrian and cycling bridge from Rotherhithe to Canary Wharf, the extension of the cycle hire, additional Jubilee Line services, the improvement of the local road network and approach to the Rotherhithe Tunnel, including removal of the Lower Road Gyratory and additional bus capacity?
Meanwhile Lib Dem London Assembly member Caroline Pidgeon has asked Mr Khan the following question:
Will you re-examine the case for introducing a shuttle bus service running round the Rotherhithe peninsula to meet the growing transport needs of this area?
Answers from Mr Khan should be published soon after the Spring Bank Holiday – we’ll let you know what he says,
