My constituents in Putney are keen to know if any progress is being made on the provision of a second entrance to Putney Overground station - is there anything the Mayor and the Deputy Mayor can do to hurry this along, as it has been a discussion without outcome for years?.

The responsibility for improvements at Putney station falls to the Department for Transport, Network Rail and the relevant train operator, South Western Railway (SWR). Although Transport for London (TfL) cannot progress any options for this station directly, I have asked TfL to raise the issue in their regular discussions with SWR.
