Tom Copley AM responds to Mayor's announcement that London Overground and DLR trains will run 24 hours a day at weekends

Commenting on the reports of Mayor Boris Johnson's announcement, London Assembly Member Tom Copley said:

“This is a very welcome announcement but with the General election only a couple of months away and no real detail about this project, Londoners will rightly question the Mayor's ability to deliver given he is increasingly checked out of City Hall.

“With fares up more than 40% under Boris Johnson passengers rightly expect to see improvements but the fact is these plans won't come into effect until well after Boris Johnson and George Osborne have left power.“Our recent research showed that staff assaults have risen 44% in the last 5 years. Combined with the Mayor's plan to axe 900 more station staff there are serious concerns about passenger and staff safety which the Mayor will have to work to resolve.”
