A few interesting items from the most recent Mayor's Question Time:
- Trains on the Gospel Oak to Barking Line will be lengthened to three cars by 2010. Electrification of the line is too expensive.
- Bus roofs are being painted white to help keep them cool.
- Boris likes Greenwich Waterfront Transit.
- This list of South London transport improvements includes things like Greenwich Waterfront Transport but conspicuously not Cross River Tram. Nail, coffin, etc.
- Croydon's tram system will be getting deep cleaned and refurbished, as well as a new livery and new seat moquettes.
- The first three bus routes to be unbendied will be the 38, 507 and 521, with "appropriate" capacity to be provided by the double deckers (note not "the same" capacity).
- The DLR is set to go back to normal on August 25 (at least on the Lewisham route) , rather than there being a different set of closures.
- The redeveloped King's Cross may include a new footbridge to allow continued access from York Way.
- The Mayor has met with Transport Secretary Ruth Kelly to ask for money for the East London Line phase 2 extension.
