East Barnet Labour Councillor Phil Cohen said: "The West London orbital rail link is a project that has been championed by local campaigners and our party for years. It is exciting that the Mayor is now backing it as it brings the prospect of jobs and better transport links much closer. This will greatly benefit local residents and I am pleased that all the interested parties will meet to look at how to take this forward."
West London orbital rail link on the right track
Labour councillors have welcomed the news that the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has adopted plans for a West London Orbital Rail service as part of his transport strategy. This vital investment in Outer London will improve orbital links for many Barnet residents, especially those living in Cricklewood and Hendon.
The Environment Committee (14 March) has agreed a proposal put forward by Cllr Phil Cohen for an invitation to be sent to TfL, the West London Alliance and Network Rail to attend a future joint meeting of the Council’s Environment and Assets, Regeneration & Growth committees to discuss the plans and how the Council can work with the Mayor to make these plans a reality.
