Val to get transport back on track

25 May 2016

Mick Whelan has welcomed the appointment of Val Shawcross as Deputy Mayor for Transport in London. Val, a former London Assembly Member, joins Sadiq Khan’s team at City Hall to try and get the capital’s public transport system back on track. Val was first elected to the London Assembly in 2000 and represented Lambeth & Southwark for 16 years until standing down in May. Before that she served on Croydon council from 1994 to 2000. 'Val lives and breathes the capital,' said Mick, 'understands transport, and has routinely tackled TfL bosses on the affordability of the capital’s transport network, and on issues of accessibility. We know Val well and we know what a good job she is going to do. It’s a great appointment by Sadiq and shows how he is determined to deliver on his campaign promises to do something about transport and housing in London. At last London has a mayor, and now a deputy mayor for transport, who will work with us, rather than against us, to deliver for passengers and give Londoners the transport system that a world-class capital city deserves.’
