Like many of you, I often use the Barking- Gospel Oak line to get across London and so I know of the work the Users Group are doing to respond to changes in service since line was taken over by Transport for London. In particular they are currently lobbying for the electrification of the line as a means of improving its capacity. Whether they are successful or not in their campaign, I believe they make an important contribution to encouraging and challenging received wisdom in Walthamstow about our public transport and so opening up discussion as to how best to serve the needs of our local area now and in the years ahead. I hope you find time to visit their site.
