Sir Peter Hendy's resignation "will leave big shoes to fill" - Val Shawcross AM

Commenting on Sir Peter Hendy’s resignation as Transport for London Commissioner, Labour’s London Assembly Transport spokesperson Val Shawcross AM said:

“Sir Peter Hendy is a tireless public servant and has made an incredible contribution to London’s transport during his time at TfL. London’s global city status relies on its enviable transport network and Sir Peter Hendy has played a central role in getting it to the place it’s in now. There’s no doubt he will leave big shoes to fill.

“With London’s transport system operating at full capacity and challenging projects such as the Night Tube in the pipeline, TfL faces difficult times ahead. We cannot afford a vacuum of leadership at the heart of London’s transport.

“I wish Sir Peter the best of luck in his new role and hope he will bring the same success to Network Rail that he has had in London. If the chaos at London Bridge station in recent months has shown anything it’s that Sir Peter has his work cut out for him.”
