Roger Evans AM: Boris will meet Havering Council to discuss Romford station

Mayor of London Boris Johnson will meet Havering Council to discuss Crossrail’s impact on Romford station.

Newly elected Havering and Redbridge London Assembly member Roger Evans got Boris to make the commitment during his first Mayor’s Question Time session on Wednesday May 23rd.

Mr Evans, who is also a councillor for Elm Park, said the station would be overcrowded if existing Crossrail plans went ahead.

Cllr Evans said afterwards: “As things stand we won’t get the bright shiny new station we’d been promised.

“It will be a big lost opportunity to develop this area of Romford, so I am delighted that Boris is prepared to step in.”
