Caroline Pidgeon comments on overcrowding on the Jubilee Line and at Canada Water in The Wharf Newspaper:

“Overall the number of delays caused by overcrowding has tripled between 2012 and 2016, according to figures obtained by London Assembly transport committee chair Caroline Pidgeon.”

“She particularly highlighted the interchange between the London Overground and the Jubilee line at Canada Water as a vulnerable spot, which further strengthens the case for the Canary Wharf to Rotherhithe cycle bridge, to which the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan is committed”
