Meeting with the Under Secretary for the Department for Transport

Thanks to Lambeth Liberal Democrats and the efforts of Councillors Alex Davies and Ashley Lumsdon I was able to meet Norman Baker, the Liberal Democrat Minister for the Department of Transport, this evening.

I raised the issue of the bridge closure with him, and he assured me he would raise the issue with Network Rail at his next monthly meeting with them.

I’ll update this post with more details as soon as I can. The hope, at this point, is that more can be done to mitigate the effects of the road works, compensate local businesses, and shorten the length of the project.
