Liberal Democrats listen to local tube-goers

Residents in Haringey are being asked their views on tube services locally and across London. Local Lib Dems have carried out surveys at tube stations in Highgate and Seven Sisters to gauge public opinion on tube transport in Haringey. Residents’ views and ideas will then be used to urge the Government and the Mayor of London to address Londoner’s concerns.

Haringey Lib Dem survey is part of a wider investigation by Lib Dems throughout London headed by Lib Dem mayoral candidate Brian Paddick.

Cllr Monica Whyte (Hornsey) and Lib Dem candidate for the London Assembly comments:

“Many people in Haringey use the tube everyday and they must have a say in deciding future developments. Lib Dems are visiting local tube-goers throughout Haringey to make sure their concerns are raised.

“Anyone stuck on a Northern misery-line train at eight o’clock in the morning will tell you that the tube network needs investment and change. We hope that by listening to users that we will be able to press the government and the Mayor to provide a service that the people of London and Haringey want and deserve.”

Brian Paddick, Lib Dem mayoral candidate, adds:

“I have launched this survey to hear what local residents have their say on what the tube needs to be improved.

“Since Ken Livingstone took over as Mayor, tube fares have risen by 25% in places like Haringey and Enfield.Londoners are paying some of the most expensive tube fares in Europe.”
