East London Line Extensions

EDM number 595 in 2002-03, proposed by Martin Linton on 28/01/2003.

That this House is concerned about recent articles in the Business newspaper claiming that the East London Line extensions scheme is to be shelved; notes that a business case for the scheme has been made by the Strategic Rail Authority and is awaiting sign-off by the Department of Transport; recognises the benefits of which the East London Line extensions would bring to areas in need of regeneration; further notes that this regeneration is worth ú10 billion in large areas of north, east and south London; recognises that the East London Line extensions would be the cheapest and fastest to complete of all London's major transport infrastructure projects; notes that the scheme cannot proceed until and unless the business case is signed off; and believes that for confidence to be maintained there must be a conclusive decision as soon as possible on extending this regeneration express London Underground line.

This motion has been signed by a total of 34 MPs.
