The Mayor


First of all, thank you for your intervention and can you please thank Kulveer Ranger, your Director of Transport, who took this up and got an extremely detailed and very positive response from Transport for London Streets. Since then I have to say there has been a meeting of the local business partnership on 13 June. Their minutes state that the members of the partnership were most complimentary about the pace of work, the quality of the crew, the revised working schedules and the overall appearance and control of the site, which they certainly were not before you intervened. So well done.

One of the things they are not complimentary about is the length of time it takes EDF to plug in the new lamp posts which is quite extraordinary. Could you perhaps get your office to issue a prodding to our electricity suppliers so they will sort themselves out?
