NLE: you may not have to pay for it after all

Lambeth’s politicians seem to be waking up to the possibility that it could be electoral poison to make Lambeth people pay for the Northern Line Extension Wandsworth wants.

NLE: Lambeth seeking ‘wiggle room’ on whether or not to splash out?

Lib Peck

If anybody knows what NLE could cost Lambeth residents, they’re not saying. A conservative estimate? £500 million. Having seen that The Vauxhall Society has asked Lambeth’s Chief […]

Northern Line Extension: officials showing some signs of care with your money

A year ago, Lambeth officials addressed the AGM of The Vauxhall Society and appeared puzzled when it was suggested that the council do some due diligence before splashing out on the Northern Line Tube extension.
