London Assembly Member for North-East London
"I'm very disappointed. So are my local MP Jeremy Corbyn, life long transport campaigner Andrew Bosi, and members of the Barking-Gospel Oak Line Users Group.
"Along with many other stakeholders we read in the Department for Transport's (DfT) High Level Output Specification (HLOS) issued yesterday, that there is no direct mention of the proposed electrification of the Gospel Oak-Barking (GO-B, or GOBLIN) section of the North London Line.
"I can't begin to describe how many years of work has been done on the case for the electrification of this section of GO-B; and how much support there is for this to happen. For whatever reasons, the DfT are not listening. No surprise then, that I have quite rightly been inundated with concerns from my constituents."
