Question

Further to question number 2014-4340:

A North & West London Light Railway could utilise many existing and some old track beds, for example a two way light rail or tram to run from Finchley Central through Mill Hill East in the disused , (but still existing almost entirely) track bed of the Northern line extension, to Mill Hill Broadway Station (and possibly on to Edgware). People could then visit Brent Cross along the Thameslink, and travel on to St Pancras or through London as far as Brighton and including Gatwick Airport, and Luton. Such a solution could further provide an effective orbital link through Colindale, to Old Oak Common (linking with CrossRail). Will you consider this idea?

Your written response being:

"Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly."

When will I get a substantive reply?
