Press push for 2006 target

Fears of years of delay on a line extension for the London Underground has prompted the South London Press to push for a target date of 2006 for its opening.

The East London Line extension was supposed to be an upgraded transport link to halt gridlock on the roads and ease overcrowding on public transport.

But lingering fears that the project could be delayed will not die down.

So the SLP has launched a No More Delays campaign demanding trains will run by 2006.

Editor Hannah Walker said: “The bright light at the end of a long tunnel, which appeared when the extension was given the go-ahead last October, seems to have faded.

“There are now very real fears the line could be delayed by years.

“2006 is the date originally promised and over the next few weeks we will focus on the effect the Tube link will have on traders, transport, businesses and house prices.”
